Update on India: Help us adopt this village

10 days ago, we published this article – http://vow.sg/help-indias-poor-under-lockdown-crisis-tie-over-famine/ – to raise funds for India’s crisis. Since then, we have sent 2 more rounds of aid consisting of food items, medical supplies and some finances. A total of 310 families and 11 pastor partners cutting across 4 villages have received help. But the needs remain high.

“Your gifts are like treasures.” Some teared. Some broke out into smiles.
This is for you, brother.

Over Easter, the President of another village called “Chinna Karagraharam” contacted Ps Johnson and requested for aid. This village of 550 families are among the poorest of the poor. They are also in the “red zone” which means the households in the village are on a lockdown due to the presence of Covid-19 cases. Nobody is allowed to go out. They would have to call the authorities if they have medical emergencies.

Ps Johnson has received special permission from the authorities to be able to distribute food items in this village. Also, in order to reach the greater number of families in this village, Ps Johnson is recommending to reduce the pack from $40 to $15/$10, for basic necessities. This village has rice. But Indians need other ingredients to cook curry to eat with their rice, like oil, dal, chillies, tamarind etc. We need to raise a minimum of $5,500 for a $10 pack. If we raise $8, 250, we could provide a $15 package.
The people are hungry and the needs are high.
If you are new to this but wish to help, you could forward this post. We have people donating from $10 to $1000. Every cent is precious. Even $10 is able to support a poor family for half a month. All doners are invited to join a public chat group with Ps Johnson inside. All our accounts are transparent and available to the scrutiny of everyone in the group. Even for people who don’t join the group, we make their contribution public in the group and we update them how their contribution adds up. Pls however note it is a Christian group and we request for your understanding if we are sensitive about this. If you like to support, please text Roxanne @ 90016790. Thank you.
