Relief After the Missouri Floods
Updates | January 20, 2016 by Midwest Region
Thousands of families in Illinois and Missouri are recovering after the worst flooding seen in over 120 years.
It began during the 2015 holiday season, and transformed hopes for a great start in 2016 to sorrow.
Tzu Chi USA has been providing disaster relief since the beginning of January.
Taking into consideration the extent of flood damage and the suffering it caused, Tzu Chi USA hosted additional disaster relief operations.
Tzu Chi USA’s Service Center in St. Louis came to the aid of 46 families (135 people), with 38 volunteers on hand with attentive care.
