Mid-West USA Tornadoes

Saddened by the devastation caused by the string of tornadoes that hit Kentucky and seven other states (Dec.10th, 2021) we at Plumbers Without Borders are reaching out to our partners and volunteers to formulate a plan to lend our assistance. While rescue and recovery is ongoing, we’re heartened by the outpouring of love and generosity from neighbors and people around the world. Please stay tuned for our newsletter and social media announcements, as they develop. If you'd like to register as a potential volunteer or to receive our newsletter, please sign up. We've also set up a Tornadoes USA fund, with proceeds going directly to victims, on our DONATE page. Please join our efforts. Thank you!
