Rain Rain Go Away

15032746_1321660144534195_4102111859687757121_nThe North Coast of the Dominican Republic has been hit with massive flooding during the month of November. Now while you usually hear of a particular day when there is talk of flooding, this has literally been all throughout the month of November. I do not believe that there was a 24 period through the whole month that did not receive at least some rain. This has had us saying, “rain rain go away, come again another day…no another month”.

Now flooding that brings feet, not inches but feet, of muddy water into people’s homes and businesses is always going to be very difficult. When you are talking about people that have very little to start with, and make very little money, it is devastating. We are working to provide assistance as we can in the form of temporary housing, food, medical treatment and emotional comfort.

We as a ministry were also hit by the flooding with two of our properties receiving damage. One was severe and cost us thousands of dollars in equipment and supplies. Having to replace so much while at the same time trying to help those in need is taking a toll on Go MAD’s finances. While we always do our best to have operational reserves, this is going well beyond this amount.

If you would consider making a special donation to assist with the flood relief efforts we would appreciate it. You can do so by clicking here and choosing “where needed most” from the drop down box. We would also ask that you pray for those affected and pray for our staff as they attempt to comfort so many that are hurting during this time.
