Washington, 18 April 2013 - American Friends of the Czech Republic (AFoCR) offered to the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the USA Petr Gandalovič cooperations with the Embassy of the Czech Republic to coordinate donations and aid to assist the town of West, Texas, which was severely damaged by an explosion and fire on April 17. At least 13 are confirmed killed and many are missing. Over 20% of the town was demolished or severely damaged, including nearly 200 homes.
