GFA-supported Workers Help Government Prepare, Sort Relief Kits for 14,000 Families

As the flood survivors of Kerala, India, recover from the devastation caused by the massive flooding, Gospel for Asia-supported workers continue to diligently serve those in need.

Congregations led by GFA-supported pastors are stepping in to help in various ways. A Women’s Fellowship located in one of the hardest hit places of Kerala helped clean homes of flood-affected families after the waters receded.

The Indian government recently asked GFA-supported workers to help them organize relief materials they received from all across the country.[1] Three hundred and fifty GFA volunteers split into two groups at two separate locations, where the items are being sorted.

These relief kits contain items like rice, dal, masala powder, coconut oil, clothes, toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap. GFA helped prepare enough of these relief items for 14,000 families to jumpstart their lives for a week as they seek to rebuild what was lost in the floodwaters.

Tamil Nadu, India, Now Experiencing Flooding

As Kerala recovers after the worst flood in nearly 100 years, Tamil Nadu, India, now faces a flood that will most likely create massive devastation as thousands of acres of crops are ruined.[2] Already, at least three deaths have been reported, and a flood alert was sounded in more than 11 districts in the state. Evacuation has been taking place, and more than 13,000 people are in relief camps across the state.

Please pray for the state of Tamil Nadu. Pray the rain will stop and the floodwaters will recede quickly. Pray there will be minimal destruction for the people of Tamil Nadu.
