Líl̓wat Nation will be receiving help this week to repair the damage that resulted from the November 9 flooding that saw 28 homes and roadways damaged, and 26 people from seven families seriously impacted.

samaritans-purse-canadaOn Tuesday, November 22, Samaritan’s Purse Canada staff and volunteers will be arriving at U̓ll̓us at 9 am to help the community repair the damage. The organization will be bringing a semi-trailer’s worth of tools, safety equipment, its own electrical supply and a bobcat to assist in the post-disaster cleanup. All they need is community volunteers. If you can help out, we urge you to do so. All volunteers will be provided with a bagged lunch and all necessary equipment.

The organization is hoping to have all the work done by Saturday, November 26.

Samaritan’s Purse Canada is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1973. The group will also be bringing two chaplains form the Billy Graham Organization to help out with emotional and spiritual care that is often needed in the face of natural disasters.

Please come to U̓ll̓us at 9 am on Tuesday morning to help those who are coming to help us.
