Houston Texans star JJ Watt’s Hurricane Harvey relief fund has now rebuilt and repaired 1,183 homes in the Houston area so far.

Now, two years after the natural disaster, the Houston Texans star has released an update about his work to help the victims of the storm recover and the results are miraculous, TMZ reported.

Along with the homes, Watt noted that his Justin J. Watt Foundation has rebuilt 971 childcare centers that serve 108,731 children, distributed 239,000,000 meals, provided medical care for 8,900 people, and helped deliver 337,000 life-saving drug prescriptions to low-income people in the region.

Watt posted an update of the work to his Twitter account:

“None of this would be possible without your generosity,” Watt said. “Thank you for continuing to shine a light on the beauty of the human spirit.”

Of course, it was all kicked off two years ago with his personal donation of $200,000 to the recovery efforts.

Watt has also personally participated in helping people return to their rebuilt homes.

Thus far, the player has helped raise more than $37 million for victims of the hurricane.

Watt also wanted to thank organizations including, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, Baker Ripley, Americares, Habitat for Humanity, Feeding America, Save the Children, All Hands and Hearts, and SBP.
