On August 29, 2019, tropical storm Podul struck Thailand. Its heavy rain and high winds caused flash flooding and landslides.
Approximately 160,000 homes were affected. Roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals were all badly damaged. Farmers have lost their harvests as over 330,000 hectares of crops were flooded.
Families whose homes were destroyed took shelter in tents on the sides of roads and in temples.
“I lost most of my household items and my house in the flood since my house is completely submerged in the floodwater,” said one affected person.
ADRA, in partnership with Thailand Adventist Mission (TAM), Ubon Adventist International Mission School (UAIMS), Ubon Seventh-day Adventist Church, and Adventist Frontier Missions (AFM), responded by providing clean water and food parcels to the most affected communities around Ubon Ratchathani.
ADRA is thankful to our generous donors. Your support helped to provide assistance to those affected by these devastating floods.
