A message from John Lyon, CEO & President of World Hope International.
Massive flooding and landslides are wreaking havoc in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, after the region suffered its worst rainfall in over a century.
The equivalent of three months of rain fell in three days, and the affected areas are completely devastated. Houses and buildings are gone, whole towns are covered in water, people are stranded and hundreds of land and mudslides are occurring. The flooding is catastrophic for an already economically strained area.
Our WHI-Bosnia office is rushing relief supplies to the most affected areas, but more supplies are desperately needed.
Our team is collecting and distributing basic supplies including water, food, medicine, clothes, blankets, clean-up supplies, hygiene products and baby supplies, but funds are quickly running out.
PLEASE – help support our emergency response to the flooding in Bosnia. Here’s what your support can do:
$350 can provide five families with disaster clean-up supplies. These supplies may include masks, gloves, cleaning solution and Windex.
$150 can send care packages to six families who have been devastated by the floods. A sample care package could be filled with rice, oil, flour, milk, sugar, one can of vegetables, meat spread, one can of fish, salt, tea bags, coffee, and chocolate.
$78 can provide three babies with diapers for the next couple of weeks.
In addition to your generosity, I’m asking for your prayers for the families affected by the flooding, strength and energy for our team to respond to the massive need, and for God’s great healing over Bosnia.
Every gift helps, no matter how much you can give. 100% of your donation is tax-deductible.
On behalf of the victims in Bosnia – thank you for your help.
