The heath care system is collapsing, and death rates are soaring. When the main breadwinner dies or loses work, families of migrant workers and day labourers face hunger, malnutrition and even starvation. There is no safety net.
What is crucial right now is for families to be able to access food.
We are working with our partners at Tearfund to provide support to the churches in India as they serve the most vulnerable in their communities.
We are sending funds to support immediately from our ongoing Faith Promise giving.

Thousands of families have been displaced from their homes. With power outages and water supplies cut off, many residents have been seeking refuge in emergency shelters.
Our Caribbean Fellowship leaders have been in direct contact with trusted church partners in St. Vincent who are already providing care to their displaced neighbours. The leaders have spoken and prayed with our partners, and they have helped us to understand the situation and the needs of their people.
Our church partners in St. Vincent have committed to distributing much-needed resources among those who have been most affected by the eruptions, so we will be sending the resources they have requested within the next few weeks.
The people are still living in uncertainty and recovery is difficult, so our prayers and support are vital at this time.
Please continue to pray for the people of St. Vincent. If you would like to be a part of supporting this response financially, please continue to give to our Global Mission Fund.
