On February 21, a major canal that supplies water to Delhi, India was critically damaged, threatening the lives of millions in one of the world’s largest cities.
“It is heartbreaking to see people suffering especially when a basic need - like water - is taken away,” says Dr. K.P. Yohannan, founder of Gospel for Asia. “In times of confusion - especially when the poor are at the receiving end of such hardship - the Church must pray, crying out to God on their behalf.”
The government of India has worked diligently to keep people alive by deploying hundreds of “tanker trunks” to help residents whose water supply was cut off.
“The quick response by the government to help provide water was critical,” Yohannan says. “Without this, the suffering would have been even greater; so many lives have been saved.”
For decades, Gospel for Asia has been serving the poor and providing vital humanitarian support with its national partners, including by drilling wells and providing clean water.
GOSPEL FOR ASIA has – for more than 30 years – provided humanitarian assistance and spiritual hope to millions across South Asia, especially among those who have yet to hear the Good News. Last year, this included more than 75,000 sponsored children, free medical services for more than 180,000 people, 6,000 wells drilled, 11,000 water filters installed, Christmas presents for more than 400,000 needy families, and spiritual teaching available in 110 languages in 14 nations through radio ministry.
