Rebuilding Homes After Chile Wildfires

Field Report by Operation Blessing

CHILE – In the wake of the devastating wildfires that swept through Chile, which left homes in ruins and families displaced, organizations like Operation Blessing have been working tirelessly on the ground to provide support and aid to those in need. Daisy’s family found themselves facing the daunting task of rebuilding their lives from the literal ashes where their home once stood.

“The fires started near us and progressed to a little below our house,” Daisy recounted. “In less than an hour, we had to evacuate with only the backpacks we packed for ourselves the day before.” The suddenness of the disaster left Daisy and her family in shock, grappling with the reality of losing their home and possessions.

However, amidst the devastation, there was hope. Organizations such as Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and local churches rallied together with our Operation Blessing team to provide assistance to families like Daisy’s. Together with your compassionate support, we embarked on the journey of rebuilding homes after the Chile wildfires.

Helping Chile Wildfire Victims Rebuild

Daisy expressed her gratitude, thanking you and acknowledging the role of faith and community in their journey towards recovery. “In these cases, I believe God moves the hearts of the people who help. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the help, what they’re doing for us and many other people,” she said.

The collaboration between Operation Blessing, YWAM, and local churches exemplifies the power of collective action in times of crisis. And you help make that possible! Dibel, a member of YWAM, emphasized the long-term commitment required for rebuilding efforts. “This will be a long-term project, and that’s why we want to keep working on this and challenge others to join us,” he stated.

Meeting Fundamental Needs after the Wildfires

In addition to rebuilding homes, we are focusing on immediate concerns as well. Addressing fundamental needs such as food and water are still important after the wildfire. With homes destroyed, ensuring access to these basic necessities becomes critical since wildfire victims have no kitchens or refrigeration to store or prepare food. Thanks to you, Operation Blessing, has been instrumental in providing these essential items to affected communities.

A Special Thanks to YOU for Your Kindness

As Daisy looks towards the future, she finds solace in the support they have received. “I want to give thanks to Operation Blessing and to the donors who are making our dream possible,” she expressed. “We’re no longer starting from scratch, and the five of us give you heartfelt thanks.”

The resilience of families like Daisy’s, coupled with your unwavering support, is helping wildfire victims get back on their feet. As Chile continues to recover from the devastation of the wildfires, your contributions are making a difference in so many lives.
