FLOODS IN IRELAND

Post  Guest on Sun 29 Nov - 11:05

Over the last week or so Ireland has been hit with some of the worst flooding ever. families have lost their homes as the floods have ripped through their homes destroying everything in their paths.
There is a Lady who has set up a forum to try and get help for the families most affected by these floods.

Here is the information on the forum. If anyone in Ireland can help in any way at all please do

http://www.offersofhelp.com/index.php

Help those affected by the floods here in Ireland.



Individuals and companies can offer services or any other form of support to those affected by the worst flooding in living memory here in Ireland.



Everyone can help no matter how small the offer, it can be a company offering a digger for a few hours, or just a few hours of your time to help people clean up the mess that has been caused by the recent flooding.



Offer a few hours of your time to help clean up a house?



Do you have some spare furniture?



Can you help a pensioner with an insurance claim?



Just register and post a message with details of what help you can offer.

We can’t accept financial donations but would urge anyone that wishes to make a donation to do so through the Saint Vincent De Paul website or the Red Cross website http://www.redcross.ie

I'm shocked to see all this. I must admit I don't watch the news that much but have never seen anything reported. Seen plenty about Cumbria and they are in a very bad state, so many bridges down and places flooded. Can't help wondering who might be next, we've had very heavy rain again overnight.

OMG this is just terrible....we take our homes for granted and seeing this is so so sad and make me realise just how lucky one is. I cant imagine the pain all the people must be going through!

I hope the Government can help them in some way!!

The government have given 10 million to help people out but as it's the Irish government they are means testing it so if you work you will get no aid at all.

If the insurance companies act the same in Ireland as they do here in the UK they'll be expecting the claimants to pay the first 10 thousand.

This is awful....imagine losing your home, belongings and your pets even... Children and the elderly must be really affected by this particularly.

These poor people. I donated to someone collecting for them the other day.

How can floods be happening in this day and age?? Man can go to the moon, take photos of Mars yes cannot proetect against riverbanks???
