When a water pipe burst, an elderly couple were beside themselves with worry – until our volunteers arrived.

When a family found their home flooded by a burst water tank, they were inconsolable – until we helped them.

Volunteer Fabrice Birembaut explains why he spends some nights helping people caught up in domestic fires.

When Cecil Muggeridge’s farm cottage was razed to the ground, he didn’t know where to turn – but our volunteers were soon at the scene to help.

When lightning damaged a young family’s home, novice volunteer Juliana Ali raced straight there to help.
