WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing the Gospel for Asia (GFA) workers who care for the least of these amidst the threat of starvation and the COVID 19 pandemic.
Jarbai spent a typical day catching fish and crabs from the local river to sell at market. Her son worked as a daily laborer, supplementing the money from Jarbai’s daily catches. While meager, the earnings they pulled in were just enough to survive—at least until the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hunger, Starvation Amidst COVID 19 Crisis
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, many countries imposed a nationwide lockdown. Families already trapped in poverty, including Jarbai’s, could not work, and no work meant no food. Millions went to bed hungry, night after night.
The threat of starvation, mingled with the threat of COVID-19, left cities, villages and communities in fear. However, Gospel for Asia workers across Asia did what they could to help combat this double threat of hunger and sickness.
