The Salvation Army in the Czech Republic provided assistance after heavy rain and floods brought chaos in the north-east of the country. One person was killed and many hundreds had to be evacuated from their homes.

The Salvation Army took over the coordination of humanitarian help in the village of Troubky where some 500 houses were affected by the floods.

Up to 90 volunteers, mostly local people, were involved in the response, distributing vital supplies from a central store to the people most in need. Financial help will be allocated after insurance demands are dealt with.
