Offering Support in Kerala, South India

Rescue camps have been opened in many places in Kerela, South India, due to the recent flood that affected the area. Now there are 50 camps accommodating about 50,000 people. Medical Mission Sisters in South India are continuing in assisting relief efforts in any way they can. They were able to access emergency funding from the Hilton Fund for Sisters, and went to the camps last week, helping  with the immediate needs of flood survivors, such as purchasing commodes for two paralyzed persons, and offering a healing presence to the families they visited.

Reaching out to flood affected areas

Medical Mission Sisters, Regy Peringarapilly, Dolores Kannampuzha and Mary Joseph Pullattu, visited some of the flood affected families in Kottayam and Alappuzha Districts of Kerala, South India. The sisters’ intention was to assess the situation and needs of people following the heavy downpour that led to flooding in July 2018.
