Heavy rains caused flooding near Bajua, Bangladesh, on May 8, 2013. Transportation and communication have since been difficult in this area.

Currently, the families of 154 children from Bajua Child Sponsorship Program (BD-305) have been affected. These families’ homes were damaged and some lost livestock. Many of these families have sought temporary shelter. The center’s activity room and a classroom were damaged; however, the program activities have continued. The center has provided the affected families with food and temporary shelter.

Please pray for the families whose homes were damaged in the flooding. Please pray for the staff members who are repairing the damage to their church.

Compassion Bangladesh will keep us updated as more information is available.
