Heart to Heart International committed to responding in the minutes following news that a devastating tornado had just ripped through communities in southern Indiana during the widespread tornado outbreak March 2, 2012.
An Advance Team mobilized and hit the road, arriving in Henryville, Indiana as the shock of what had happened a few hours before was still very fresh and visible.
The Advance Team came, not just to assess, but ready to deliver aid in the form of Care Kits, water and medical supplies. The town’s only medical center was put out of commission by the tornado, so Heart to Heart’s rolling emergency room, the Mobile Medical Unit, will now serve temporarily as the town’s only hospital. We have partnered with the local healthcare system and volunteer medical personnel will staff the MMU.
There is plenty of work to be done in the coming days. Work that is made possible by you.
Here’s how you can continue to help:
- Make an online donation
- Text “HEART” to 27722 to make a $10 donation on your mobile phone
- Mail checks to Heart to Heart’s office
We need groups to assemble Care Kits as part of our healthcare response.
