Christian Aid launches India relief effort

    0

    Premier Radio News reports – Christian Aid has joined with partners in India to provide aid for more than 350,000 people displaced by a huge cyclone in the country.

    Winds of up to 125mph and heavy rain slammed into India’s east coast on Sunday, killing at least 21 people.

    Cyclone Hudhud wrecked homes, uprooted trees, tore down power and communication lines, cut off road and rail links, and flooded thousands of acres of farmland in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha.

    Christian Aid’s regional emergency manager, Dipankar Patnaik, said: “India’s eastern coast and neighbouring Bangladesh are routinely hit by severe storms between April and November. This is the stark reality facing some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities.

    “It is an incredibly worrying time. People fear for their safety, for their loved ones and for their livelihoods. Whole communities rely on farming and fishing to make ends meet. Rice, coconut, cashew and mango crops have been ruined, and with it people’s source of income.”

    Christian Aid has started providing emergency supplies such as food and shelter but says it is hard to get to some areas because of the damage.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

    What is your response?


    If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
