Handicrafts, Donation Boxes Aid Flood Relief

As flood relief efforts continually take place in Kerala, India, GFA-supported workers serving in various locations are raising funds for their brothers and sisters in immediate need.

“When I heard the flood situation of Kerala, I felt very sad and immediately visited the mission fields to make contribution for Kerala relief work,” GFA-supported pastor Jai said. Church members, GFA-supported Sisters of Compassion, pastors and Women’s Fellowships joined together in their spheres of influences, going door-to-door with a donation box, asking their neighbors to give to the relief funds. Handicrafts were also made to sell to raise more funds.

“I felt like it is a privilege to help God’s people over there in Kerala,” GFA-supported pastor Bibhas said. “We feel sad to hear about Kerala flood situation, but we happily [got] involved in the contribution work. Many have given their resources. We will continuously carry out the contribution in several places.”

Through their combined efforts, more than 2,000 rupees have been raised by these communities and church members.

Linking Arms with the Government to Offer Relief Aid

GFA-supported workers continue to partner with the government to help in any way they can.

Some churches led by GFA-supported pastors in North India have collected two train cars full of wheat that will be given to the government for its relief kit distributions.

Please keep praying for the ongoing flood relief work and consider giving financially to help families get back on their feet, as the floodwaters have stolen many people’s livelihood.
