For more than 20 years, Operation Compassion has been looking for ways to reach out to assist individuals and families that have found themselves in difficult circumstances. It doesn’t matter if a disaster caused the immediate need for relief and aid or if it was a result of socio-economic status. When people find themselves searching to provide the basic necessities of life, Operation Compassion has always found a way to provide assistance. Often times this assistance included food, bottled water, clothing and shoes, cleaning supplies and equipment, building supplies of all types and many other types of help.

In 2001, Operation Compassion launched a program in southwestern West Virginia, in the heart of rural Appalachia. This particular area of West Virginia and Kentucky relies heavily upon the coal industry for people’s livelihood and is considered one of the most impoverished areas of the United States.

For the past couple of weeks the Midwest and other parts of the country have been facing some devastating weather. Tornadoes, floods, severe thunderstorms, torrential rainfall and damaging winds, just to name a few of the difficult weather conditions people have had to face. Along with these severe weather conditions, dams and levees are at risk of overflowing or giving way, in many places, because of the pressure from all the water. Many cities along the Arkansas River are in danger as the water flows downstream creating disaster scenarios. Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri have all faced disaster during the past couple of weeks.

During the past several weeks, north central and central states have suffered through torrential

rains and snow melt that has caused unprecedented flooding. Thousands of acres of farmland have been sitting under several feet of flood water. Roads have been closed, homes flooded to the second story in some cases and businesses have been shuttered. Finally, the flood waters have receded to the point where relief aid can be sent.

In response, Operation Compassion has sent disaster relief products including bottled water, non-perishable food, diapers, hygiene products, cleaning supplies and paper products. Hundreds of families have been unable to get out and are in desperate need these items as they are working hard to get back to a “normal” life.

The Parkway Church of God in Omaha, NE is serving as a distribution point for this disaster aid. Ronnie Riddle will be dealing with the logistics of getting the product to the people who need it. As the flooding continues to abate, more supplies can be brought in to help.

Operation Compassion will need your financial help in meeting the needs of the hundreds of people affected by the severe flooding. It is easy to give online, by phone or through the mail.
