Crisis Response

Serving in Minot, ND

Crisis Response Team

In June of this year Minot, ND was inundated by flood waters, the likes of which have not been seen in many years. 4,100 homes and businesses experienced significant damage. 23,000 people were evacuated. Water systems were contaminated for up to two months.

Fast forward to today and homeowners are frantically preparing for the winter. 500 families are being housed in FEMA temporary housing which are not designed for the harsh North Dakota winters. The number of families in this housing will likely double.

Our four person Crisis Response Team served alongside local and regional relief teams during late October. They assisted with clean up, winterization, food distribution, and clerical tasks. GI Free sent 40 handmade blankets.

 

 

 

In times of earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados, floods, hurricanes, and the like, the E. Free Crisis Response team attempts to make the tangible love of Christ known regardless of ethnicity, geography, religion or economic class.

Working alongside churches, TouchGlobal provides a demonstration of Christ’s compassion, not only in the U.S., but reaching out with our partners in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East/North Africa. Help demonstrate the compassion of Christ around the world!
