Updated - Friday 12:00 pm

Siksika in need of temporary housing/shelter - donated tents & sleeping pads would be great!


PLEASE NOTE: The need for donations to the First Nations communities of Siksika, Morley, Eden Valley and Tsuu T'ina is urgent for several factors:

* The high number of people impacted relative to the population of the community. (In Siksika, for example, there are 1,300 people without homes in a community of 6,000.)

* The lack of or poor state of infrastructure to be able to provide critical aid. Many communities have had bridges and roads blocked, closed or destroyed by the floods

* The length of time required to get federal and provincial assistance to the communities. The federal and provincial governments will be assisting in the rebuilding of the homes and infrastructure impacted by the devestating floods - but this will take weeks if not months and years.

In the meantime, while communities wait for longer term efforts - people must be sheltered, fed and cared for. Thousands of people in the effected communities have lost everything except the clothes on their backs - so they will need all the basics: babies need blankets and diapers and formulas; children need food, snacks, shoes, books and toys and so on.

We never know when we will be in need - we hope we never have to be - but should that need arise it would be appreciated if our family and neighbours (near and far) are there for us.
