Disasters come in many forms and they often strike when least expected. This was the case with a recent tragedy in Sikkim & West Bengal, India. In the darkness of the night, a combination of excessive storms and a major dam failure brought devastating flood waters into unprepared and unsuspecting mountain communities. As the flood waters receded and communication channels were restored the extent of the tragedy became clear. Several people lost their lives. There were also many who lost their homes and livelihoods.
ADRA India recognized the need and quickly began networking and assessments to best understand how they could provide relief. ADRA is now in full response mode and will be aiding individuals and communities with much-needed supplies and funding. This aid will go directly to those who have nowhere else to turn.
ADRA India along with the global network desire to demonstrate the compassion and love that drives what we do. We welcome your prayers and financial support for the people of Sikkim and West Bengal. We most of all desire to restore communities and individuals so they can thrive and live as God intended.
