Project Destruction Report of Cyclone Sidr

Greetings from Bangladesh. Thank you for your continuous prayer for Bangladesh. After the cyclone everyday we are getting confirm news from our PF, Project manager and media. As per today’s report 3,153 people died and 40, 00,000 people lost their houses fully or partially. Last night we came to know that one of our child’s (SATHI BISWAS, BD 316-0046) father is missing after the Cyclone. Professionally he was a fisherman and he went out for fishing before the Cyclone. Now peoples are suspecting that Cyclone took his life in sea. Sathi lives with her mother and a younger brother of three and half years old. I am enclosing some picture what I received from one of our project. I will update with new information in afternoon.

  • A few years back my friends and I helped to raise funds for a Bangladesh mission which provided medical services to the area with volunteer doctors and nurses, I was so sad to hear about the recent cyclone disaster. I've been keeping the whole situation in my prayers.
