Helping Families left Homeless by Massive Fire

Lined-up on a path of dirt mixed with ash, 130 people stood waiting their turn to see a doctor. These are some of the over 2000 people left homeless in Pallam, India, by a flash fire in their village one month ago. Children’s Hope donors provided for this mobile medical clinic and food distribution to help the 650 families who lost all they own.

Quickly after the flames raced from one thatched roof to another, relief workers arrived in this fishing village in East Godwari district of Andhra Pradesh. But Paparao Yeluchuri, Children’s Hope partner in India, says, “…slowly, one by one the help disappeared.”

But Paparao will continue to help. He says that the donations sent by Children’s Hope, will allow him to conduct two more mobile clinics and four feeding stations. Each pot of cooked food feeds nearly 120 hungry children and their parents.

Recovery will be slow in this poor community on the east coast of India, as their poverty deepened by the cruel flames.

“Kind regards to you all for all the compassionate help you have given to these fire victims. God bless you all,” Paparao said.
