You can help families rebuild following the
Ottawa/Gatineau Area Tornados

On the afternoon of Friday, September 21, 2018, tornados swept through the Ottawa and Gatineau region leaving a trail of destruction. Over 130 homes, businesses and farms were destroyed or deemed unsafe in various locations including Dunrobin, Kinburn, Calabogie, Ottawa, and Gatineau.
Thankfully, there were very few injuries, albeit one death, reported as a result. 
The immediate response to the crisis from people and businesses across Canada and especially in this region has been inspiring! 

Yet, the process of restoration will be a journey for many families as
they rebuild their lives. 
YOU are needed!

Every ONE can make a difference as we work together! 

The Oasis church, in partnership with other area churches, is coming alongside to assist those impacted, to rally community members in this effort with a focus on Dunrobin and Kinburn and extending to Ottawa Valley and Ottawa.
