Baptist Global Response
BGR is repairing a canal in Central Asia, which will benefit thousands of people. The canal provides both irrigation and drinking water for roughly 60 percent of a 35,000-person community. Over time, the waterway has been damaged and has fallen into disrepair, leading to floods and to the loss of large amounts of water. A partner says his team is providing material to repair the worst damage, opening up more water for villagers at the end of the canal and mitigating flood damage caused by leaks. They are also providing flour to pay day laborers working on the project. Pray this project will help partners develop good relationships with both local officials and with local residents.
