Over a million people are estimated to be displaced as torrential rains and severe flooding affect communities throughout Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sierra Leone. Hundreds are feared dead and if heavy rains continue, many more people could face serious injury, property damage, or lose their lives.
World Renew is responding.
Through longstanding partnerships with local organizations World Renew is able to respond to the needs of some of the most severely affected families. With your help we are committed to providing assistance to families in need and are currently working with our partners to complete rapid needs assessments.
In Nepal, flooding has had a devastating impact on many families who had also been affected by the massive earthquake that struck the country in April 2015. World Renew has worked closely with Crossway Community Church since the earthquake, and is now providing support as they help families affected by the recent flooding. In the coming days Crossway will provide emergency food and non-food items to 500 people in immediate need. Through your support this assistance can continue and help even more families in need.
In Bangladesh World Renew’s longstanding partner, PARI Development Trust, is working in areas most severely affected by flooding and is monitoring the situation as water levels in 23 rivers are already above the danger level.
Your support is also making it possible to respond to needs in Sierra Leone, where mudslides in Freetown and flooding in the country’s northeast have affected thousands. This work is possible through ongoing local partnerships with the Council of Churches in Sierra Leone, and Christian Extension Services.
All donations made to World Renew’s International Rapid Response Fund will go towards responding to this urgent need, providing hope and relief as families recover and rebuild their lives.
Please give generously today.
