    Providing Relief After Flash Flooding In Italy

    By France Relief Team (Originally in Italian)

    On October 10, 2014, Genoa, Italy experienced severe flash flooding due to continuous torrential rain that lasted for two days, which took at least one life and left thick layers of mud and silt in the streets. Later in the evening, as soon as receiving Master’s loving message to aid the affected people, a team of our Association members from France traveled to Genoa. We brought money envelopes to distribute to those in need and loaded the van we drove with food, drinks and cleaning supplies. The financial assistance and all relief items were purchased with EUR 3,279 of Master’s relief fund.

    We arrived at Genoa the next morning despite the storm. After learning of the situation from local people, we immediately headed to the most severely hit areas such as the city center and near the main train station, Brignole. All day, we went street by street, visiting house by house to offer supplies and monetary assistance. The next two days, we continued our search for people in need. Overall we distributed food and supplies worth approximately EUR 500 and 26 money envelopes with EUR 100 in each.

    Our deep gratitude for Master’s loving care and generosity. We send our heartfelt prayers to those who lost a loved one, and all those recovering from the flooding.
