Recent Floods and How We Can Help
The effects of floods and storms are felt immediately, yet will cause
immense problems and concerns by many for months to come. Water damage
can be devastating and emotionally-draining.
So how can we help?
In the immediate aftermath of a flood or storm, liaise with your local
community leaders, introduce yourselves and offer practical and
financial support. Statutory authorities implement emergency plans and
are the experts and designated emergency leaders.
Continue to support by continuous monitoring and using your contacts as
time goes by memories can be short and, as we all know, the media
move on to the next event very quickly. It may be that over a longer
period, individual and community needs will be identified. Seek out and
join in others fund-raising events.
Contribute financially. If your local community has no identified
needs, consider contributing to help meet the needs of others. For
a. Appeals by other districts for immediate assistance.
b. Contribute to: The RIBI Flood Appeal or The RIBI Disaster Fund
