Encouragement for Tornado Survivors

Disaster Relief

Frank Xu will tell you: volunteering in a post-disaster setting is a humbling experience.

He joined our latest tornado relief effort on the weekend of February 26-27, where Tzu Chi Midwest provided emergency financial aid to impacted families in Dawson Springs, KY. “This is [a] short-term $1,000 cash card that they can use for any purchases they need,” he explained.

In addition to being able to help people, being present and volunteering his time was valuable: “It was good to be able to hear everyone’s stories on the ground, because when you see things in the news, you hear, like, all [these] numbers and statistics, but when you see a person face-to-face and interact with them, you can get to understand their personal story and the struggles each person is going through.”
