Response to Wildfires in Fort McMurray

May 16, 2016

Christian Credit Union is pleased to support the families affected by the Fort McMurray wildfires by donating $5,000 to World Renew – Response to Fort McMurray. As firefighters and first responders work to contain the flames, World Renew Disaster Response Services (DRS) is monitoring the situation and connecting with local and provincial partners to determine how it can best be of assistance.

“Once it is safe to visit the area, we will be able to better coordinate our efforts and determine our first steps in recovery,” says Henry Visscher, World Renew DRS regional manager for Alberta. It will take a long, coordinated effort between local officials, non-governmental organizations, and the provincial emergency agency to meet the needs of fire survivors.

World Renew DSR has previous experience working in Alberta. "We worked very well in the months and years after the 2013 flood in High River, Alberta," said Visscher about World Renew’s connections in Alberta. "This strengthened our relationships to one another and will only be an asset as we serve the individuals and families so devastated by these fires.”

Your prayers and generous donations are needed. If you would like donate to World Renew – Response to Fort McMurray, click here. If you prefer to donate by phone, fax, or mail, click here. All gifts marked "Alberta Fires 2016" will support the fire response efforts in the days, weeks, and years to come.
