Gospel For Asia provides water to millions crushed by drought in India

Workers supported by Gospel for Asia (GFA) are supplying food and truckloads of water to desperate villagers across India, as a crippling drought affects nearly a quarter of the country.

"As drought conditions worsen, more and more people are forced to spend their days searching or waiting for water," said K.P. Yohannan, founder and international director of GFA.

The drought is the result of two poor monsoon seasons, which have dried up groundwater reserves and other reservoirs. The drought is expected to affect India for the next six months, costing the national economy at least $100 billion.

The city of Hyderabad is facing a 47 percent gap between water supplies and demand, and farmers are selling their livestock to survive, according to Business Insider India.

GFA-supported workers are undertaking emergency measures to help, including plans to provide 6,000 liters of water throughout the month to 12 villages in one district and one-month rations for 1,000  families. Elsewhere, they are drilling "Jesus Wells" and undertaking other water-supply and food relief efforts.

"I have no one to take care of me," said one individual who received help. "I work in different agricultural lands for survival, but nowadays, due to severe drought, I have no work, and we were in real trouble. Many days we slept without having food, and now we can have full-time meals."

"We are helping as best we can, but the needs for food, water and work are nearly overwhelming," said Yohannan. "It will take the best efforts of all of us - praying for the Lord to intervene and provide help - so these precious people can survive during this terribly difficult time."

Gospel For Asia has – for more than 30 years – provided humanitarian assistance and spiritual hope to millions across Asia, especially among those who have yet to hear the Good News.

Last year, this included more than 75,000 sponsored children, free medical services for more than 180,000 people, 6,000 wells drilled, 11,000 water filters installed, Christmas presents for more than 400,000 needy families, and spiritual teaching available in 110 languages in 14 nations through radio ministry.
