Disaster Relief
  • 2016: Alberta declared a state of emergency in the oil sands community of Fort McMurray. Raging wildfires forced more than 80,000 people from their homes in the largest wildfire evacuation
    in its history, as explosive fire conditions ravaged homes and businesses. The Alberta Minister of Municipal Affairs, declared it a province-wide state of emergency. People often fled, with only what they could carry or fit in their car, to evacuation points at oil sands camps in the North and to other communities in the South.  Alberta firefighters, along with firefighters from across the country, concentrated efforts to save critical city infrastructure.
  • 2013: Alberta, Canada experienced extensive flooding which was declared the worst in the history of this Western Canadian Province. More than 100,000 people were impacted. Many people were displaced from their homes due to flood waters, utility power failures, devastation from damages and the imminent dangers of associated health risks due to contamination. Hand of Hope,
    in partnership with First Assembly Church in Calgary, immediately reached out and got involved on the ground level by providing volunteer workers with meals. We also provided volunteers
    with equipment needed to prepare for restoration and rebuilding, from protective gear to the tools required to help clean.
