India Emergency
Posted: 19 Sep 2019

In August, responding to urgent requests for aid from three eparchies of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, CNEWA launched an emergency appeal for people in flood-ravaged southern India.

The Syro-Malabar Catholic Eparchy of Palghat reported that torrential rains had triggered landslides in the hilly areas of the Palakkad District, burying houses, people, livestock and patches of agricultural lands in mud several feet deep. CNEWA’s regional director in Kerala, M.L. Thomas, added that flash floods ravaged the lower regions of the district, destroying houses and fields located along its rivers and streams.

CNEWA is asking for help to aid our brothers and sisters in southern India in their hour of need.
