Following the flooding that inundated thousands of homes and businesses in West Japan, Operation Blessing's cleanup team worked hard and tirelessly throughout the summer heat to haul out mud, gut walls and floors, clean with power spray cleaners, and remove soiled personal effects.
The Hanada Maternity Home had been inundated to almost the second floor. The home had been started by the present head midwife’s parents some 50 years ago in an effort to help the local community. The midwife's 85-year-old father shared through tears in his eyes how grateful he was for the Operation Blessing team to come and do a major cleanup job of the facility, and their home behind.
Daughter and father had been in a daze as to what to do when disaster struck. However, they learned through a friend who had been helped, of the Operation Blessing Cleaning Team, and asked for help.
Operation Blessing staff and volunteers spent a number of days working on their property to get it ready for renovations that would be needed, and so that the second floor of the facility home could be used for supporting pregnant mothers.
Thank you for your support of Operation Blessing to make this all possible.
