Red Cross seeking donations for flood victims

The Canadian Red Cross is providing aid to those people whose lives have been disrupted by flooding that has devastated parts of western Manitoba and the province’s Interlake region.

“For many families, the heavy rainfall that has hit Manitoba has been more than an inconvenience — it has forced some to flee their homes,” said Shawn Feely, Canadian Red Cross provincial director for Manitoba.

“For many others, floodwaters have severely damaged their houses, leaving them with a serious challenge in getting their home lives back in order.”

For displaced families who have requested help, the Red Cross is helping people by providing essential care items they may have had to leave behind. Other recovery assistance may include cleanup materials and the replacement of essential personal items destroyed by floodwaters.

Red Cross volunteers will work with individuals and families to identify needs and available resources.

“Red Cross is committed to helping all Manitobans impacted by the flooding. To ensure we can meet that commitment, we are asking people to provide financial support to the people in need,” Feely said.

The Red Cross relies on the generosity of Canadians and corporations to support families impacted by disaster. Red Cross works with governmental partners to avoid duplicating other available assistance or services and ensures essential needs are met and families receive the support they need to recover from disaster.

People can donate by calling 1-800-418-1111 or giving online at redcross.ca/mbflood and earmark their donations for Manitoba Floods. All donations made to help Manitobans will stay in Manitoba.
