Making sure help gets to those who need it

As promised here is an update of our work helping those affected by flooding in North Bihar.

As you know we do not work in the flood affected areas, but we are able to help in the most effective way by working at village level with very small grass roots organizations located within these stricken communities.

Long term assistance includes loans and grants to start up small business, the gift of animals, the strengthening of defenses at a local level, helping make village dwellings stronger and ensuring access to basic medical care.

I traveled personally to supervise the distribution of much needed aid materials; again it seems the government is slow to respond to urgently needed aid.

These people although there has been work to secure flood defenses live in daily fear of losing their homes, their livestock and even their lives.

They are teetering on the brink of another major disaster. Let us hope and pray this time it can be averted.

I would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for this worthy cause,

With best wishes to you and thanks,
