On November 4 and 5, 2017, hours of torrential rain and powerful winds brought unprecedented flooding and destruction to vulnerable communities in the Penang area of Malaysia. Countless families lost virtually everything they owned.
This fund will help local groups of believers in ongoing efforts to identify and assist those most in need. Initial stages involve rescue, temporary housing, provisions, and cleanup. Secondary stages include rebuilding, replacing furniture, and repairing vehicles. Long term stages will include working with leaders in poor communities to develop plans to provide earlier warnings, improve drainage systems, etc.
