As of February 28, 2020, more than 80,000 cases of coronavirus have been documented across the globe, with that number growing every day. BGR has been in consistent communication with our partners throughout East Asia to determine how we can best help in containing the virus and ministering to those who have been affected.
This month, local churches will partner with BGR to distribute 30,000 surgical masks, along with hand sanitizer, to five impacted regions in East Asia.
The medical masks and hand sanitizer will cost approximately $16,000 total. You can help by giving a gift to BGR’s Disaster Relief fund to cover the cost of these supplies. A gift of $40 will purchase about 100 masks.
Your gift will help families across the world feel cared for and protected from the disease sweeping their region.
Please join us in praying for the protection of church members who have volunteered to distribute the masks in various city centers. Pray for them to be powerful examples of the love of Christ, and pray that a cure for coronavirus would be found soon, without further damage or deaths.
