Helping Pakistan Flood Victims

Shelly Meyer

Two weeks ago monsoons in Pakistan created flood waters that have now swept across one quarter of the country affecting 20 million people causing five times more damage than the 2005 earthquake. The floods have left a severe shortage of clean drinking water putting up to three and a half million children at a high risk of deadly water-borne diseases as well as an estimated six million at risk from such diseases as cholera.

As the rain and flood waters continue to pass through the country, Pakistan and the United Nations are appealing for aid and emergency response funds for much needed shelter and medicine. Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope is providing disaster relief funds to supply as much life-saving aid and relief to the affected areas as possible. We are also distributing many of Joyce’s books in the native languages of the region to provide comfort and hope in this time of adversity. As a partner of Joyce Meyer Ministries, your support is going directly to meeting the needs and displaying the love of Christ to those affected by this disaster.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
