Images Of Henryville

These photos from Henryville were taken during Heart to Heart’s nearly week-long operation in southern Indiana providing medical aid with our Mobile Medical Unit and distributing Care Kits to residents in the region.

The images are from downtown where the tornado did the most harm.  The damage was great, but the restoration is well underway due to the resolve of the local community.  And we at Heart to Heart want to thank the residents of Henryville and surrounding communities for letting us serve.

Heart to Heart Begins Work In Henryville

henryville 1Heart to Heart International committed to responding in the minutes following news that a devastating tornado had just ripped through communities in southern Indiana during the widespread tornado outbreak March 2, 2012.

An Advance Team mobilized and hit the road, arriving in Henryville, Indiana as the shock of what had happened a few hours before was still very fresh and visible.

The Advance Team came, not just to assess, but ready to deliver aid in the form of Care Kits, water and medical supplies.  The town’s only medical center was put out of commission by the tornado, so Heart to Heart’s rolling emergency room, the Mobile Medical Unit, will now serve temporarily as the town’s only hospital.  We have partnered with the local healthcare system and volunteer medical personnel will staff the MMU.

There is plenty of work to be done in the coming days.  Work that is made possible by you.

Here’s how you can continue to help:

  • Make an online donation
  • Text “HEART” to 27722 to make a $10 donation on your mobile phone
  • Mail checks to Heart to Heart’s office

We need groups to assemble Care Kits as part of our healthcare response.
