Project Details


  • Project Description:

    A flood of 700,000 refugeeshas been driven into this South Asian country because of persecution, violence, and ethnic cleansing. Now they face new disasters such as floods, mudslides, hunger, and disease. This humanitarian crisis is one of the greatest of the modern age, and 60 percent of the victims are children. 

    Massive flooding  caused by monsoon rain has destroyed makeshift tent housing in refugee camps, causing mudslides and loss of life. During flooding, refugees are subject to water-borne disease like cholera, typhoid, diarrhea, and giardia; children and the elderly are the most vulnerable. 

    This situation providesa flood of unique opportunities to respond to human needs and share the gospel. As Christian workers respond, many doors open for to share the love of Jesus with those who have never heard. Your gift will provide firewood for cooking, a school for children, children’s meals, toilets, clean water, school supplies, lighting for camp safety, trauma counseling, and the gospel on SD cards. 

    A flood of supportis needed to respond to refugee needs. Getting to the hard-to-reach places is challenging because of flooding. Workers must travel by air, boat, train, or other forms of ground transportation. Finding lodging in the affected areas is difficultLocating survivorsmeeting immediate needs, sharing the gospel, and providing follow-up discipleship are the priorities of crisis ministry. The ongoing flood of refugees and regular monsoon flooding that displaces people is a crisis for this nation whose basic human resources are already stretched thin. Give today to help South Asians realize that God loves them and will be their refuge, protector, provider, and Savior.
