CRU deployment to Além Paraí­ba - 14 January 2012

This Saturday, the 14th of January, three members of our Crisis Response Unit, including myself, visited the city of Além Paraíba, in the neighbour state of Minas Gerais, together with a team from the Nova Friburgo Red Cross chapter. We took supplies of food, water and other donations, and also visited a shelter for victims of the recent floods and landslides there.

I took my Fiesta car, although once again saw the need for a four-wheel drive vehicle, especially so that we can take needed supplies, such as bottled drinking water, to isolated communities.

Once again, here are some photos from Saturday's activities.
