South Asia Monsoon
As we watch Houston in disbelief, an even bigger catastrophe is underway in Nepal, Bangladesh, and India, where monsoon rains of epic proportions have battered the region for weeks. Close to 1,200 people have died and millions are homeless. There's malnutrition, little clean water, and fears of widespread disease. About 41 million people are affected, which is close to the population of Texas and Louisiana and Oklahoma and Mississippi and Arkansas put together.
Save the Children - giving children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
Mercy Relief - providing timely and effective aid when disasters strike, and empowering communities in Asia.
Please offer your support, and prayers.
