I’m reaching out to you with a heavy heart for our Chinese brothers and sisters.
As you read this, millions of people are under quarantine because of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus. And the families of more than 900 people are mourning the loss of loved ones claimed by the disease.
Last week, one of our partners in China contacted us, begging for help during this global health emergency. We have been in touch about what we can do to help fight the coronavirus.
“People feel helpless,” our partner said. “Every week, they are hearing reports of hundreds of more deaths. They are wondering if they will be the next person infected or the next person to die. And the worst part is that many people have no way to protect themselves. Stores are sold out of masks. Food in many places is running low. People can’t fight the disease without these things.”
As this coronavirus crisis worsens, I’d like to ask you to do two things:
- 1. People are terrified. They’ve never experienced an outbreak that’s this deadly or spreads this fast. Please stop whatever you’re doing and pray on behalf of the Chinese people at risk of catching the coronavirus — especially for children and the elderly.
- 2. Give. World Help is partnering with local pastors distributing emergency relief in the provinces surrounding Wuhan … but they desperately need more supplies. Your $20 gift will provide a week’s worth of food and a protective face mask to one person.
As Christians, we have a responsibility to show the love of Christ to our neighbors in crisis — whether they live next door or around the world. Please stand with these Chinese families in their darkest hour.
