Fort McMurray area residents are receiving two semi-trailer loads of flood and pandemic aid from a Calgary-based charity.

Exactly four years after it brought relief to wildfire refugees in the region, Samaritan’s Purse is returning with more assistance for thousands of people driven from their homes after ice-jammed rivers spilled their banks.

“We’re on the ground, connecting with churches and other community partners as we provide compassionate, co-ordinated assistance,” said the charity’s Canadian Ministries Project Director Brent Davis.

Flooding began late last month when ice jams backed up the Athabasca, Peace and Vermilion Rivers, forcing the evacuation of more than 1,300 people and impacting nearly 1,500 structures in the region.

Many of the evacuation orders were lifted last weekend and residents began trickling back to assess the damage and begin the task of cleaning up.
