Salzburg, 07/19/2021 (KAP) Caritas Salzburg has also started its emergency aid after the devastating storms and is urgently asking for donations. In the Hallein region, in Oberpinzgau and in Kufstein, around 200 households are already known that would need help, according to Salzburg’s Caritas in a broadcast on Monday. The need for help is currently being clarified with the parishes and parishes via the regional Caritas centers.
Experience from past storms shows that storm damage can present those affected with dramatic problems, according to Salzburg’s Caritas Director Johannes Dines: “In such cases, the food supply of an entire family is often lost because the freezer or storage cellar is muddy and damaged. and electrical installations fail completely, the direct costs for coping with the emergency situation cannot be covered and put those affected in additional distress. ” Here you can help quickly and easily with the Caritas emergency aid program, says Dines.
Quick and unbureaucratic help – mostly cash – is needed to bridge the gap until insurance and other support services arrive. This emergency aid is financed from donations, “said the Caritas director:” That is why we ask the population for support. So that we can help effectively and quickly. “
