Mennonite Disaster Service Update on the Grand River and Thames River Flooding – 6 March 2018: At this point MDS ON offers for flood relief assistance has been declined by the municipalities affected, including Brantford and Chatham-Kent. The MDS Unit will continue to monitor the recovery progress.
MDS Flood Recovery Update from the 2017 Ottawa River Flooding: It is nearly a year since the Ottawa River flooding. MDS responded in Constance Bay (Municipality of Ottawa) with cleanup last May, then repair in Sep, and then were asked to consider rebuilding 2 new homes that had been condemned due to the flooding. This rebuild project of 2 homes has been taken on by our conservative Mennonite constituency (Markham-Waterloo, Old Order and Orthodox Mennonite), starting in mid Dec and expecting the house dedications to take place later in Apr 2018. We are grateful for God’s leading and blessing for these volunteers. More details coming in the Spring MDS ON Newsletter.
