Come Hell and High Water in Fort McMurray

The Fort McMurray Floods have wreaked havoc on a community that has been tested too many times recently.

In 2016 the massive forest fires devastated the community and many people lost their homes; the downturn in the Oil Industry has left a large section of the community unemployed.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has closed businesses and added to unemployment.

Fort McMurray Floods 1

If those disasters weren't enough the April 2020 flooding has hit people's lives, homes and businesses again. 13,000 people were evacuated from their homes.

Businesses were flooded and ome people have lost their homes for the second time in 4 years.Fort McMurray 2

Many are still fighting to get insurance payouts from the fires and many do not have insurance coverage for flooding.

The community is rallying around its residents in the face of this adversity but the toll is high.

Disaster Aid Canada is working with Rotarians on the ground who are coordinating with nonprofits and small business, soup kitchens and shelters, individuals and families in need.

Disaster Aid Canada has also set up the Fort McMurray 2020 Flooding Relief Fund.

They are working with Rotary District 5370 and the two Rotary Clubs in Fort McMurray, along with community organisations to ensure that relief funds are used in the community for victims of this disaster.
