In case you haven’t heard, widespread flooding in southern Mexico is forcing thousands from their homes.  About half a million people have had their homes damaged or destroyed, which is a staggering number.  And you can bet that there isn’t a lot of flood insurance down there, which means that most families will have to rebuild everything themselves.

Unfortunately, with no infrastructure to help them, many residents have been forced to drink out of swollen rivers or overflowing cisterns.  This obviously compounds the problem, as disease will naturally shoot through large populations with poor drinking water.

One way to help is click here.  World Vision, among many other organizations, is offering a chance to support, feed, and offer clean water to families in desperate need.  And, of course, take time out of your day to pray for those affected: for their health, their safety, for relief from flooding, for a future that is hopeful.
