Red Cross Opens Flood Recovery Centres in Manitoba

By Tyler Sutherland

The Canadian Red Cross has set up numerous flood recovery centres throughout Manitoba to help flood-affected Manitobans get back on their feet.

The Red Cross is working with rural municipalities to place case assessment workers in locations throughout areas in need to answer questions, conduct one-on-one needs assessments to determine unmet needs, make referrals to other organizations as required, and distribute clean-up kits.

More than 7,000 Manitobans have been evacuated from their homes since spring flooding began.
