When floods struck Banaba in August 2013, Argee and family were among hundreds who found themselves sheltering for days in an evacuation centre. Their home was damaged, and they lost many of their possessions.
But, thanks to you, we were there to help. Argee and his family evacuated safely thanks to the warning systems you helped fund. They also had hot meals in the evacuation centre, and received emergency relief once waters receded. If it hadn’t been for you, they wouldn’t have received the support they needed to survive and recover.
As families around the US gather to give thanks, we wanted to let you know that Argee and hundreds of others like him are thankful for you this year.
We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving from Banaba and our staff at IDV!
