Bangladeshis Receive Emergency Support for Flood Relief

From August 4-11, 2023, devastating rains tormented the Bandarban Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh, affecting millions of people in the area, including three Holy Cross schools and three Holy Cross parishes. Due to the flooding caused by the heavy rains, many homes were damaged, there was no electricity for weeks, paddy and vegetable fields were lost, and people suffered from a shortage of food, medicine, and clean drinking water.

Through the generosity of benefactors, the Holy Cross Mission Center was able to provide funding for emergency relief. The funds provided were used to purchase necessary food and medicine, to repair homes and electric lines, and to purchase sand and pilling to repair the damaged roads.
