Last week’s rainstorm and flash flooding in Donegal reminds us that it’s not just in Texas and South Asia that climate change is impacting. Here at home these “once in a century” weather events are becoming more common.
Over the weekend, ElectricAid approved a donation of €5,000 to the Red Cross Appeal for Donegal. These funds will go for immediate help – generally with cleaning up and making habitable some of the 500 affected homes.
This is a smaller emergency than those which we usually respond to, but the donation is a good example of ElectricAid reaching out to “look after our own”. Again, this is only possible through the sustained generosity of our steadfast members – thank you all.
