B’nai B’rith International is opening its Disaster Relief Fund to provide aid to the victims of the catastrophic wildfires that swept through Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada on May 3. More than 80,000 residents were evacuated last week, and the fire has engulfed more than 500,000 acres of land and has destroyed more than 2,400 homes and buildings.
Residents of the oil-sands town won’t be able to return home for several weeks; even as the fire is starting to move farther east into areas that are far less populated.
B’nai B’rith International will work with B’nai B’rith Canada in coalition with other agencies to provide long-term rebuilding plans for Alberta. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Canada.
