The statistics in poorer countries in Asia are very disturbing. More people are dying because of starvation due to the lockdown. Many of our own church members are daily wages laborers. Which means that if they don’t work today they don’t eat tomorrow. So the lockdown puts them in a position to starve. They are making the dangerous trip to come to our Bible workers asking for rice and small vegetables so they and their kids don’t starve to death.
These countries include India, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Indonesia and others.
This fund is to provide something for them during this terrible time.
