WILLS POINT, TX – Explore the story of Sahasra, a single mother whose life was transformed by GFA World’s Christian charity flood assistance after a devastating flood.
Sahasra’s life as a single mother and sole breadwinner for three sons was difficult enough. Now that her tiny, one-room house had collapsed, she didn’t know what to do.
When a week-long deluge of rain overflowed the rivers and canals around Sahasra’s village, flooding wreaked havoc, destroying homes and halting transportation and communication lines for days. Sahasra’s life as a single mother and sole breadwinner for three sons was difficult enough. Now that her tiny, one-room house had collapsed, she didn’t know what to do.
After hearing from a local pastor about the plight of the flood victims, Gospel for Asia leaders in the region visited the affected villages. As they went from house to house, they found out what needs people had and comforted them, assuring them they would assist them. During this visit they met Sahasra.
“I am a daily labourer,” she told them. “I barely survive with my children. Now I have lost my house, and no one is there to help me.”
The GFA workers promised Sahasra they would help meet her needs.
