The Need for Disaster Relief Work

GFA-supported national workers serve victims of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, cyclones and floods. A devastating storm can wipe out homes, crops and livelihoods in an instant, leaving impoverished families with very little hope for the future.

These relief teams love the Lord and serve the needy from that same heart. They immediately step in to assist victims of natural disasters by providing emergency relief like food, clothing, clean water and shelter. They provide counseling and pray for families grieving lost loved ones. Workers bring long-term solutions too, helping to rebuild homes, put children back in school, and provide income-generating tools to get families back on their feet again.

Latest Report: Extreme Flooding in Kerala August 2018

Kerala, India, is experiencing monsoon rains that have not been seen or experienced since 1924. Reports estimate that 70 to 100 lives have been taken due to the floodwaters. Many homes and businesses have been washed away by severe landslides and rivers overflowing because of the constant downpour. For the first time in its history, the shutters of 35 of Kerala’s 39 dams have been opened to keep the dams from erupting, which would inevitably create even more destruction.
