Matthew 25 Ministries arrives to aid Oklahomans
MOORE, Okla. – Tuesday evening, the first of the trucks from Matthew 25 Ministries arrived at Hillsdale Free Baptist State College in Moore, Oklahoma.
The trucks had traveled across the country with supplies from corporations like Proctor and Gamble.
“There is more damage here and it went through more of a populated area than I have ever seen before. It is truly catastrophic,” M25M CEO Tim Mettey said just moment after he viewed some of the worst damage around Plaza Towers Elementary. “This is reality and the people here have suffered more than you could show on on any video camera.”
Matthew 25 Ministries is based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, and typically helps about 10 million disaster victims around the world.
They provide diapers, food, water, blankets, cleaning supplies and more for victims of any and all natural disasters.
“Anything that you would use every single day, we have and have brought here,” Tim siad. “Also we are going to be giving supplies to the relief worker, you know, people who are sometimes forgotten.”
Mettey said the damage across Moore is some of the worst he has seen.
As KFOR toured the damage with Mettey, his face was ashen and he was shaken up.
“We may be sending help here longer than the others,” he said. “Some may be a couple of months. This one will probably be a year or so, that we will be sending supplies here.”
