Interchurch Ministries of Nebraska has been in contact with our outreach workers at the Rural Response Hotline in Bancroft, NE. They are still assessing the immediate needs. However, past efforts have required emergency generators, fence repair and rebuilding, farm lane rebuilding, emergency shelter and food, as well as feed and medication for livestock. Many farmers have reported that their livestock is isolated and a number of farmers and ranchers have reported the death of livestock from the preceding blizzard and the later flooding.
I have added a donation page to our website for a designated disaster emergency fund. Please publicize this in your congregations. The website is www.imneb.org and click on Support Interchurch Ministries of Nebraska.
I will continue to update you on the areas affected and the needs that are most urgent.
