Disaster Relief

For so many families who survive disaster, recovery is a long journey. “We had no hot water for one year, we had no power for one year,” details Andrea Brazell. She and her family have been living on their property in Concow, CA, where their former home burned down in the 2018 Camp Fire. Of the time since, her husband Jason says, “we’ve just been surviving.”

 

But, after a meeting with Tzu Chi Chico’s Bobbie Rae Jones, the Brazell’s were well on their way to receiving a manufactured home. “She put the pieces together and built this plan for us,” Andrea described. That plan came to fruition this winter when the Brazell’s finally received a permanent home, supported by Samaritan’s Purse, the Camp Fire Collaborative, and Tzu Chi Chico.

 

“I think you guys are a great organization,” said Jason; “anyone that can volunteer and go help people just out of the goodness of their heart because they want to, I mean, that’s somebody you want to know in life.”
