    Swift Relief to Those Affected by Tornado in Illinois, USA

    By Illinois, USA Relief Team (Originally in English)

    Responding to Master’s caring instructions, our Association members from Illinois quickly came to the aid of those affected by a rare and severe tornado on Sunday, November 17, 2013 in Illinois, USA. With a contribution over US$1,300 from our Association members, and financial assistance from Master available if needed, a variety of relief items such as fleece jackets, socks, hats, gloves, underwear, baby wipes and emergency food supplies (vegan energy bars, nuts and bottled water) were purchased in a short period of time.

    Our relief team set out the day after the tornado tore through the areas of Peoria and Washington. Many people had lost their homes and some fields were left completely uprooted. Residents were bravely searching for their belongings and cleaning up their homes. Some houses were beyond repair, and most of the area was without electricity. Local police officers directed the team to a church in the center of the affected area, where a shelter and rescue center had been set up. At the church, there were many helping hands available to gratefully receive the relief goods.
