In January two wildfires raged in Southern Alberta. MDS was contacted with a request for help with the Fort Macleod fire. The Alberta Unit is now engaged in helping a family in Fort Macleod. Their mobile home suffered severe smoke damage as well as damage to the siding. Their family farm was leveled of all outbuildings and fences, including the horse stables, which affects a portion of their livelihood.
Work on the project began in mid-March. At this point, the project is running with day workers, overnight accommodations are being offered for those further away. Please pray for the volunteers as they work, for safety and good cheer, and also for the family who is being helped. Contributions for this project can be sent to the MDS Region V office in Winnipeg.
MDS volunteers are known for repairing and rebuilding homes damaged by disasters. But it takes more than construction skills to serve with MDS. During the time that you serve as a volunteer, you will learn that MDS also restores lives.
Your contribution will help to connect volunteers with disaster survivors who need assistance on their path to recovery. MDS depends on the support of people who believe that disaster response is an important part of helping those who are in need.
