BRIDGE OF HOPE MISSION FIELDS BECOME A PARTNER BREAKTHROUGH

India

Over 2,500 people were killed in mainland India due to the worst earthquake the country has sustained since the 1950s. More than 80 aftershocks continued to terrorize the nation, one of which measured 5.6 on the Richter scale. Thousands of people died and hundreds were missing as a direct result of the sudden crisis. Some were trapped inside homes and businesses as walls collapsed and exits caved in on themselves. Nearly 300,000 people were left homeless by the initial 7.9 magnitude earthquake.


Partners and friends supported Bridge of Hope’s mission to deliver enough tents to shelter the population of this small city. Over 10,000 people found shelter in the 2,500 tents given to the area. Provided with love and faithfulness, those who strive to be Christ-like continue to operate as He has ordained.
