INDIA – In August, GFA-supported workers living and serving in Kerala, India, braved flooded streets and homes to rescue hundreds of stranded people after monsoon rains escalated into the worst flooding in nearly a century for that south Indian state.
Workers rode in high-rise tractors and traveled in boats to remote regions, providing immediate aid to people in desperate need of help. At relief camps, they partnered with the government to distribute water, food, mats, buckets, sanitary napkins, toothbrushes and many other items to people waiting to return home.
Dr. K.P. Yohannan, founder of GFA, was on the ground during this natural disaster, distributing supplies into the hands of grateful people who had lost everything in the flooding.
“Kerala has experienced an unexpected flood and loss,” Yohannan said, “but the Church will stand with the affected people and will help them in whatever way possible.”
Seeing the urgent need, hundreds of people around the globe worked together to offer aid. Because of their compassionate hearts, men, women and children in Kerala received the help—and hope—they need to rebuild and restore what has been lost.
