Due to the current pandemic, millions of people in Asia have lost jobs and are plunging into poverty. Rejection, fear and a lack of food supplies have left many people in utter despair. They have no hope to dream for a better tomorrow.
Seeing this heartbreaking situation, GFA missionaries and churches in Asia are stepping up with generous hearts to show kindness to the neediest individuals. While they have been taking necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, GFA workers have decided they can’t stay in their homes and simply watch people around them suffer.
Some missionaries left meals, groceries and hygiene supplies outside the doors of people in home isolation due to the coronavirus. In another region, workers distributed hygiene kits to more than 100 families. Missionaries in two other locations also gave groceries to people in need.
One woman who received groceries told the team in tears, “I am pregnant, and it is my sixth month of pregnancy. But I am able to eat only one-time meal a day. Due to the lockdown, my husband does not have work, and we are unable to meet the family’s basic needs.”
