Update 2, April 27
1:58 A.M. Beth Brewster: OK after 6.7 after shock. Know 35 kids okay check in go. Rest
11:03 A.M. Beth Brewster: Right now we are all safe, but all our Tinpiple families have been displaced. Poured last night they got soaked under their tarp. Looking for tent(s) for short term. So much damage there, not sure we can find housing in that same area.
11:06 A.M. Beth Brewster: Oh and NTC my telephone network has been down this whole time!
11:20 A.M. Beth Brewster: Brought books to our "parking lot/campsite" to help kids pass time or as they say here " time pass"
3:36 P.M. Beth Brewster: Good News Jurgen arriving from Belgium Tuesday with tents for our Tinpiple families! Temporary solution, but it is a start. Next working on food. As many of our families cannot afford to buy in bulk they can
1) Not stock up on common items i.e. rice & dal
2) Afford the high prices that are sure to come.
We have identified families at risk and have some ideas, hope to start to implement tomorrow.
