KRYMSK, Krasnodar, Russia (July 7, 2012) — The Russian weather forecasting center said a massive rainfall of eleven inches, fives times the monthly average led to Russia's worst floods through the south of the country. According to the center's chief, Roman Vilfand, the water poured down a steep-sided valley, rapidly swelling a river which overflowed and swept away homes and vehicles in its path as reported by Interfax news agency.

Authorities failed to issue warnings or evacuation orders, as 171 people died in the floods. The town of Krymsk is home to more than 2,000 Assyrians who suffered in these floods.

According to an SBS: Assyrian report by Mr. Wilson Younan, five (5) Assyrians have been killed, including two (2) children.

"Torrential rain and flooding last Saturday turned streets of Krymsk and adjacent towns into swirling muddy rivers and inundated thousands of homes while many residents were sleeping, forcing people to flee from their beds climbing trees or rooftops to find safety." Mr. Walter Benyamin, the president of Assyrian organization of Krymsk told SBS Radio.

ACERO Launches Relief Effort for Krasnodar Flood Victims
by Assyrian Church of the East. July 15, 2012.

The Assyrian Church of the East Relief Organisation (ACERO) has issued an urgent call to faithful of the Holy Church and of all compassionate individuals worldwide to support a major campaign to provide urgently needed aid to Assyrians affected by massive recent flooding in Krasnodar, Russia.

According to recent reports, flooding in the Krasnodar region of Russia has to date left 171 people dead with more than 25,000 people having lost part or all of their belongings.

The flooding has had a particular impact on the town of Krymsk, Krasnodar where more than 2000 Assyrians reside.

Amongst the dead are 5 Assyrians including 2 children. Additionally, more than 140 Assyrian houses have been either partially or completely destroyed.

ACERO is appealing for assistance to help the families affected by the disaster which is expected to have an ongoing impact in the region.

Financial assistance is urgently needed to provide direct aid to Assyrians in the region. This assistance will help in the relief effort on the group and will support in the provision of food aid, shelter, clothing and other items as the situation develops. ACERO is coordinating with Rev’d Patrous Polous, parish priest in Krasnodar and with other community leaders.

ACERO and the Assyrian Church of the East call upon faithful to lend a hand of support that urgently needed aid may reach those most affected by the flooding.

Donations can be made simply and securely through ACERO’s website using PayPal at the following link:

Receipts will be issued by ACERO via e-mail.

Alternatively donations can be made through all Assyrian Church of the East parishes worldwide with a note that the funds should go to the ACERO relief effort for victims of the Krasnodar floods.
