For some families, after a flood, just getting from their home to the grocery store, a doctor’s office or even to a neighbor’s house becomes a daily ordeal. Volunteers with Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS), a WV VOAD member agency, have spent the past two weeks building bridges in the Alkol area of Lincoln County, which sustained flood damage in 2015. They are providing residents there with new private bridges to give them safe access to and from their homes. In the coming weeks, MDS volunteer teams will be working on other bridge projects in Clay and Kanawha counties. The WV VOAD Bridge Project’s success depends on the hard work of these volunteers and the many organizations that help fund these critical projects!
