Counting On‘s Jason Duggar and John David Duggar (his brother) rushed into danger to help victims. Many of these people have dealt with the loss of a house, or at least severe damage to their property because of Hurricane Laura.
Counting On: Jason Duggar and Brother John David Arrive Quickly
We’ve seen a lot of Duggar children from Counting On help with natural disaster clean up. This time, it’s Jason Duggar and his helpful sibling John David Duggar that are leading the charge. Fans also noticed Jason Duggar’s good friend Lawson Bates from Bringing Up Bates was also on the ground with them.
The volunteer team with Medic Corps came into southern Louisiana only hours after Hurricane Laura left a path of terror and destruction. Not only do these volunteers bring much-needed help—but they also bring hope.
Fans of Counting On and residents of Louisiana thanked John David and his brother for their help. Many people lost their entire homes, cars, and other belongings to the category 4 storm.
What Jason & John David Duggar Are Doing to Help
Jason Duggar is not a pilot, but John David of Counting On is. Both of John David and Jason bring a unique skill set to the relief efforts in Louisiana. Jason has his own construction business and is helping with search, recovery, and restoration as needed.
The Medic Corps team, including Counting On TLC’s Jason and John David, is on the ground over the weekend. And they may even stay longer depending on the need. They’re doing everything from minor vehicle repairs like helping change tires to refueling vehicles and more.
They are working with the local fire department and other teams in the area. Residents said their help is invaluable, and they are grateful to have them on the ground.
Counting On: Recovering from the Storm
It will be a long road to recovering from this devastating storm. Many residents still haven’t returned to check the damage. Others are trying to stay safe even though they’re in hopes without proper coverage.
Counting On stars John David, Jason, and their team urged anyone who is stuck to reach out to them. With such a high level of connectedness, everyone will likely be able to reach out for help—even if that help takes a while to come.
Thunderstorms and rain are putting a damper on the search and recovery efforts. These conditions make it harder for the team to find people and unsafe for people to search for help outside of their shelter. In the upcoming days, officials will continue to survey the damage wreaked by this horrifying natural disaster. The boy’s parents, Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar, sent their well-wishes and endorsement as they soldier through this difficult recovery and search outreach.
