floods113 dead and almost half a billion dollars in property damages as a result of Floods in the Czech Republic

Dear friends of the Czech Republic,

Last week saw big parts of our country struck by catastrophe. Flash floods in Moravia and Southern Bohemia took 13 lives and caused almost half a billion dollars of damage. In the middle of the night, hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes, many of them with nothing else but the clothes on their backs.
We are asking you to extend a helping hand.
Czech Canadians in Masaryk Memorial Institute, Sokol Canada, St. Wenceslaus Church and Hearts Open Toronto with the support of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Toronto, have created a trust fund to help the victims of the 2009 Floods
