LEAKESVILLE, Miss. (WALA) - Uprooted trees, downed power lines, demolished houses and even lost life are painful reminders for Leakesville that their wounds are just beginning to heal. However, a local Mobile non-profit organization called Overflow International is working to see those wounds heal a little quicker.
The organization is a combination of several local churches, helping victims any way they can.
"What we do is when we hear something like this we get in our trucks and leave and help whatever we can do by ministering, praying for people, feeding them, cutting trees. Whatever we can do that we can see the need at, is where we go" said co-Director Mike Wilson.
Victims of the tornado see the volunteers as an inspiration during these times, and are thankful for their help.
"It's a blessing, it really touches your heart when you have volunteers that come up from other areas, Red Cross and other communities that come together in a time of tragedy." said Leakesville resident Willie Burley.
Overflow International is in it for the long haul, as they will alternate personnel and continue to provide aid until the victims are as whole as they can be again.
Overflow International was founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and helps in emergency situations across the Gulf Coast.
