Millions of men, women, and children are suffering from the ongoing torrential monsoon rains that have occurred in Bangladesh this year. These rains have caused 90% of the region to become flooded and underwater. Families including Nurjahan’s are experiencing heartbreaking circumstances completely out of their control as they lack food, potable water, and shelter. YOU can send life-saving aid to 400 families in the Diocese of Sylhet as they lack the necessities to survive. Your kindness and generosity have helped them in the past, and they need our relief now more than ever.
We can make a difference in the lives of many in the Jaflong, Khadim, Mugaipar, and Rajai areas, including Nurjahan’s family. When the floods came, her family, including her gravely ill husband, lost everything and became homeless. She painfully depicts seeing a wall of water rush through their bamboo home in northeastern Bangladesh as the flood disintegrated it. Not only did they lose their home, but they also lost nearby roads and crops essential for transportation and survival. Nurjahan and her family solely survived by selling and bartering chickens and ducks as the floodwaters began to subside in the following weeks, but that source of income has run dry. The Diocese has given aid to her family, but their resources are not enough to care for the hundreds of displaced families who have been affected by the flooding.
Can we count on you to give a gift of $75, which provides aid to a family like Nurjahan’s?
Bishop Gomes is grateful for the impact YOU have made on the Diocese of Sylhet in the past. He thanks us for investing in initiatives including providing a quality Catholic education, school building, teachers, learning materials, and nutritious meals to underprivileged children of tea farmers. He is also grateful for lifting the orphans at the Bottomley Girls’ Orphanage so that they may receive the care and tools they need to succeed!
Can you spare $150 to give two families life-saving necessities including food, water, and medicine?
As we have fostered hope and change in the Diocese of Sylhet, we can continue to support them during this difficult time as they face life-threatening conditions due to the floods. We hope to provide urgent relief for400 families who are in dire need of food, water, and medicines in the Jaflong, Khadim, Mugaipar, and Rajai areas. Join us as we stand with these families by giving them life-saving essentials and displaying true servants’ hearts in their time of need.
