India: Bible Societies share hope after deadly flooding

Partners helped deliver physical and spiritual resources in the wake of a natural disaster.

In December 2015, torrential rains caused damaging flood waters to rise in India's fourth largest city of Chennai, leaving hundreds dead and thousands displaced from their homes. In the wake of the flooding, Bible Society of India, with support from American Bible Society, worked to provide flood victims with Scripture Portions and relief goods, such as food, cooking equipment, clothes and bed sheets.

Through its auxiliary office in Chennai, Bible Society of India successfully distributed 935 packages of relief goods along with Scripture Portions. These relief packages have provided assistance for more than 2,000 people from four villages.

Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for nearly 200 years.
