Disaster Update: June 2, 2022
The water level in flood-prone areas has dropped considerably and is returning to normal. Waterborne diseases have been reported among members of the community in the aftermath of floods. Most caregivers in the area work to extract coal and rocks from the river and have not yet been able to go to work because it is still too dangerous to do so. The Child Development Center staff are ready to help in any way they can.
Please continue to pray for participants and their families as they recover from the flooding.
