Christian relief agency sends aid to monsoon victims

Christian relief agency Tearfund is sending emergency aid to several counties in the region following the worst monsoon rains in 50 years.

Sudarshan Sathianathan, Tearfund's head of Asia region told Premier much of the region's infrastructure has been destroyed.

He said: "There's been a huge amount of damage, not just to people's homes and their livelihoods but there's been damage to infrastructure in a big way, bridges being broken, roads not passable as well as telecommunication breakdown".

Tearfund and its local partner there will be distributing food, warm clothes and plastic sheets for shelter to parts of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan.

The disaster has claimed 450 lives so far, with millions dispersed.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
