Black and white photograph showing the aftermath of a landslide disaster in a Welsh mining village in the Rhondda Valley. Slurry destroyed parts of the village and invaded several homes making them uninhabitable. The Mid Glamorgan Branch immediately offered help to the Rhondda Borough Council, which co-ordianted the relief operation. There was an immediate appeal in a local paper for furniture and household items to replace those destroyed by the slurry. In a letter to the Red Cross, the Mayor of the Rhondda Borough Council said: 'In the highest tradition of your organisation help came to those who needed it at the right time'.
