Massive Mud Slides in Rio de Janeiro

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

Rio de Janeiro has recently experienced brutal rains and flooding resulting in massive mud slides. To date, the death toll from this disaster is over 550 people and continues to rise. Large areas of the region are completely inaccessible as major roadways have been washed out and are now difficult to reach. This is the worst natural disaster in Brazilian history.

Joyce Meyer Ministries, Hand of Hope is partnering with Light to the Nations, Bello Ministries, and El Eliom Group to provide assistance to those in need, including; water, personal hygiene items, food, and clothing. Please join us in prayer for those who have lost loved ones, have been injured, or have been impacted by this disaster in any way.

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.
