Campus Swap Helps HOPEww Potomac Valley

HOPE worldwide Potomac Valley Chapter, in partnership with Rebuilding Together – Fredericksburg and Abby Construction Company, built a handicapped ramp for Herbert Dodd at his residence. Through the partnership, the ramp was provided at no cost to the homeowner. Herbert has been in a wheelchair for months since a stoke left him disabled. As a shut-in he was not able to go outside his home, even to enjoy a nice day.  His wife Brenda serves as the primary caregiver and prayed for help. She was so excited and grateful for the work, as were many neighbors who came by to inquire about the project.

Flooding Paralyzes Jakarta

Torrential rains in Jakarta, Indonesia are finally starting to subside following paralyzing flooding in the city that began on Sunday night.  Rivers, canals, flood plains and drainage systems could not hold the heavy influx of water and flooding spread into the streets and homes.  Massive traffic jams caused by flooded streets full of people trapped in their vehicles ground the city of 12 million people to a halt.  The combination of the heavy rains, unfinished construction of canals, high sea levels and insufficient coordination of the city’s water pumps have contributed to the flooding problem in Jakarta, where 40 percent of the city is located under sea level. More storms are anticipated to worsen the situation later this week.
