Update (10:00 13/10)
Helping Point was hit hard this week by Cyclone Titli. Thankfully, all of the Helping Point children and staff are safe, however, some buildings at St. Simon’s School have been destroyed.
Please pray for:
Safety from further harm or damage, particularly safe drinking water and power to be restored.
Swift and decisive action by the Helping Point Team and local disaster relief efforts.
God’s love and care for his people to be shown in miraculous ways.
We are collecting donations for emergency relief for communities and families affected, as well as funds for building repairs and strengthening of our infrastructure.
Update (17:30 13/10):
The roads have now been cleared, allowing Bidyuta access to Jhola Children’s Home and St. Simon’s school. All children are safe and the rain has temporarily subsided. Continue to pray for safety and peace as the Helping Point team determines what actions need to take place in the coming days.
Update (15:00 14/10):
Helping Point has approved the immediate appeal for two funding areas - a Community Relief Fund and a Rebuilding fund to be used for the construction of a permanent Dining/Worship Hall to replace the above damaged temporary structures. Please consider a donation to either of these two appeals:
