Immediate Help Needed: Monsoon Floods Displace Thousands
Monsoon season has become like something out of a nightmare for the people of Myanmar. Devastating floods have slammed 12 of Myanmar’s 14 states, killing over 100 people and displacing thousands of others.
Torrential downpours were confounded by Cyclone Komen in late July, leading to massive flooding and landslides throughout remote Myanmar. Thousands have been forced to flee from their homes to take refuge at local monasteries, churches, and schools. At present, hundreds of thousands are confined to makeshift living quarters without access to food or basic hygiene necessities.
These improvised campsites are a short-term refuge from the floods, but without access to basic hygiene essentials, they are becoming a breeding ground for waterborne diseases. Conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly if relief efforts cannot reach flood victims fast enough.
Our partners in the area have been working directly in these 12 remote villages that were affected by the floods. We have identified approximately 250 families that are now in need of immediate humanitarian aid . . . and we’re asking for your help to sustain them in the midst of this crisis.
For $25, you can provide food and basic necessities for a family for one week.
For $100, you can provide food and basic necessities for a family for one month.
No amount is too small. Simply providing one meal for a displaced family will bring comfort in excruciating circumstances. This is an extraordinary opportunity to reflect the love of Christ in Myanmar. Join us in providing tangible hope in this devastating hour of need.
