Despite the hardships of the months since the cyclone, Jacob has hope. Thanks to Tearfund supporters’ generosity, our partners were able to help people like him in the tropical storm’s aftermath with food, water and shelter. We’ve also been training people in new planting and cultivating techniques for quick-growing and high-yield food and cash crops, and teaching how to process peanuts – a good source of new income.
Jacob has built a new home for his family, but Tearfund partner training to help people be better prepared for disasters has given him new ideas: ‘When there are the resources available, I will build a cyclone-proof house. I’d like to build a strong community house we can all go to be safe during the next cyclone.’
Please pray for a strong and lasting recovery for Jacob and his fellow islanders.
We pray because we're desperate for God - to walk with him... in step with his will for the world.
