Tuesday, May 12. 1987 3A Flood survivors I Home Accent need "H ' "'"o""""" and-up' WVU E~en,ion Allet~ Hme F, conoml,, Grqmnbder C~mM~ I By DIANE R, SMITH Can you give a "hand-up" to a flood survivor who still needs help to set his house in livable condi- tion? A new survey by Greenbrier Friendship Volunteers revealed several urgent needs among survivors of the 1985 flood, accord- ing to Marti Marshall, Director. "West Virginians carry a reputa- tion for independence," Mashall stated. "Several families thought they had resources for repairs and did not pply for help. They found the cost greater than estimated and have had to live without even basic repairs. They don't want a 'hand-out,' but will gladly take a 'hand-up' to lift them out of their present suffering so they can again carry on self-sufficient lives." A new or used washing machine and an electric range top the list of needs in the household line. Some families thought their machines worked akay after they cleaned them, but troubles developed later from the corroding flood waters. Some thought their walls simply needed outward cleaning, but later trouble developed so both the insulation and dry wall must be replaced, and those building mat- erials are still needed. Some survivors received mater- ials for repairs of their homes, but still wait from a volunteer to do the those people do not know of services available to them. They suffer in silence, feeling failure because they can no longer make ends meet. A volunteer who will offer a "hand-up" can listen to their problems, refer them to the proper source, sometimes take them to that office and help with forms. Most flood survivors feel great anxiety during times of heavy rain such as this area had recently. A friendly telephone call from an interested neighbor or a volunteer would greatly ease the burden for senior citizens who have special needs. Heavy budget cuts from the Federal level down to the local will curtail many services to those who need them most. Only when volun- teers come forward to give their materials and services can the surivors of the great flood of 1985 see their most basic needs met. "Greenbrier Friendship Volun- teers will keep this office open until August," Marshall stated, "so all this work must be completed by then. Only as local citizens reach out with goods and services will we meet that goal." Volunteers over sixty years of age can enroll in the RSVP Program when they sign up at the GFV office. They will get credit for their hours of volunteer work, Both they and Spring is the perfect time in West Virginia for hiking long distances enjoying all the natural wonders of our mountain state. But, don't let the exhilaration of backpacking and hiking blind you to their health hazards. Hiking and backpacking are popular activities, ranging from one-day outings, and extended wilderness trips all the way to mountain climbing. Health haz- ards are involved, but they usually can be handled with common sense and advanced planning. If you have a medical ailment, especially heart disease, or chronic lung or kidney disease, consult your doctor before embarking on a hiking trip. The following pointers can help you have a safe hiking trip: * Wear well-fitting boots that have been broken in. Ankle length boots protect against sprain and abrasion. Wear two pairs of socks to prevent friction, the prmcipat cause of blisters. * Take adequate clothing and shelter for winds and rain. Remem- ber that weather can change very rapidly. * Take along a first aid kit, matches, compass, flashlight, in- sect repellant, and emergency food and water rations. work as they have no funds for the younger volunteers can get labor. Other jobs awaiting volun- reimbursement for gas mileage teers include one-day tasks such from the GFV office in the Seneca i Mental Health building in Lewis- I as tilling a garden, doingyard work burg.

Wear a hat and use a sun screen. * Take special care m washing your hands before preparing food. Observe strict sanitation with your hygiene routine. Camp at least 100 feet from lakes and streams to avoid polluting the water. If you have any doubt about water purity, boil the water for 20 minutes or treat it with iodine pills. * It is best notto travel alone. But, if you choose to, make sure someone elso knows where you are going and when you plan to be back. Hiking isgreat exercise as well as a chance to commune with nature.
