The charity, Samaritan's Purse is offering spiritual support to those affected by the floods in Germany. 

Severe flooding and landslides rocked western Germany ten days ago as areas received record amounts of rainfall. Samaritan's Purse says nearly 200 people lost their lives while 300 remain missing and nearly 750 are injured.

In addition, thousands of homes have been damaged, roads have been washed out, and power lines damaged.

The team has also been distributing meals and groceries to those affected by the tragedy on July 14th. 

The charity's Project Coordinator in Germany. Alexander Becker says many of those affected are still in shock and can’t comprehend what has happened :

"We have encountered people who have lost friends to the floods or who have been part of search-and-rescue efforts, With each, our teams offer a word of encouragement and prayer."

Samaritan’s Purse German Executive Director is Sylke Busenbender : 

"As Christians, we want to show God’s love and offer hope in this disaster situation, in addition to practical help, please pray for those affected and the helpers on the ground."
