At the moment there is an epidemic of vomiting and diarrhoea in the Chaco area where SAMS nurse, Beryl Baker is based. Beryl has placed an urgent request for medicines to distribute. These are expensive and funds are low. They are still waiting for the government to declare it an emergency zone.
The cause of the epidemic is probably the use of dirty water from ponds as the wells become empty. We need to get water into the communities with our water tanker to avoid people from dying of dehydration….. again an expensive task, especially with the low exchange rate.
PLEASE PRAY that the Lord will provide all the resources, financial and practical, to help Beryl to treat those who are suffering, so that deaths can be prevented.
PLEASE PRAY for the provision of funds to provide fuel to get desperately needed water into the communities.
