Non-profit World Medical Relief needs help with crumbling roof

- World Medical Relief has been helping people in need in metro Detroit and around the world for 65 years.

Now the organization needs some help of its own.

"This winter the roof started leaking terribly," said Josephine Jabara, World Medical Relief.  "It will be pretty costly to repair. We need to repair it, because if we don't do this, the whole building will eventually be destroyed by all the water coming down."

Employees have created makeshift plastic chutes to catch the water when it rains. And when you look at the ceiling tiles, you can see the water marks from all the leaking.

"The area where the most activity is and the most people come through, is hit the hardest," she said.

Located in Southfield, World Medical Relief is funded through donations and grant money. It provides affordable medication, medical equipment and hygiene kits.

The non-profit organization does not have the estimated $100,000 it will take to repair their roof.

"In order to help others we also need people to help us," said George V. Samson, World Medical Relief.
