David Webb shares his experience as a volunteer in Japan’s flood stricken areas

Today, I went to Mabicho (真備町) in Kurashiki that was inundated by floods from the torrential rain a couple or so weeks ago to do volunteer work.

On the dusty, flood ravaged streets, everyone, from the volunteer staff and the locals were giving their best.

It’s a slow progress and it might take five or more years for them to recover. But it is my hope and prayer that the affected will get back on their feet and be proud that they have overcome the hurdle!

Today, listening to the locals, their stories of how the flood started taking over the streets and eventually their homes was devastating and heartbreaking. I don’t think I can endure what they went through. Even though it was hot and humid, I didn’t feel physically tired from the work. But I am emotionally drenched and weak after seeing the damage and hearing the horror the affected locals has to go thru.

I hope and pray for nothing but a speedy recovery…stay strong Mabicho and the likes affected by the floods.
