Urgent Needs In Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nigeria

Compassion Services International has received three urgent request in recent days. We ask that you prayerfully consider a donation to Compassion Services International so that relief supplies can reach those in need.

Bangladesh: Coldest temperatures in five decades have brought normal life to a veritable standstill. Many in this area are just not prepared for this type of cold weather. This is especially true for those who live in Shanty towns or those who are homeless. Another concern is the increase of cold related illness striking those who can’t receive proper medical care.  CSI has been in contact with a missionary on the ground who is awaiting funds so that warm clothing, blankets and other relief supplies can be purchased and distributed to those in the greatest need.

Sri Lanka: Cyclone Nilam displaced thousands who have had to take shelter in make-shift camps. CSI would like to send $5,000.00 to help those who need. This amount would allow our contacts to begin assisting with rebuilding and would allow other relief supplies to be given to those who have lost so much.

Nigeria: Massive flooding has caused hundreds of deaths and displaced millions. We know of five pastors who have lost their homes and dozens of their church members lost homes and crops. This is devastating because these families depend on their crops for income and for food. The need here is great, $225,000.00. We believe that God can provide this amount and CSI wants to do its part. We need your help.

Let’s start 2013 off by sharing the blessings that God has given to us by giving to those who have so little. Without our help many of those in need will suffer dire consequences. Together let’s change our world.
