Last month, severe flooding occurred in PremNagar as well as other villages along the Karnali River. Over 20 people died and others are missing as homes collapsed or were swept away in the flood waters. PremNagar School was a flood shelter for many families who have fled their homes. The Tikpaur Church organized a relief effort to deliver food, water, and medicine to the flood victims.

Thanks for your support for flood affected people. We able to provide flood relief in eight villages. All together, we have provided relief for 800 flood affected families in these villages so far. It was a great blessing to work with you for these flood affected people.
In one place called Daulatpur ghat, five houses was washed way. Food, clothes, money, kitchen stuff...everything's gone except themselves with only clothes. They were asking food at village and living in other people house. They were crying when we were there to help in that situation. We gave them Rice 20kg, Lintel 2kg, salt 1kg, cooking oil 1kg, water bucket, jug, clothes, and utensil and tent. They were so thankful and touched by what we did.
In Simrahani, we meet a 70 year old women. She have only one disabled son. Her small house, food, clothes, and everything was washed away in front of her eyes. She was crying and trying to jump onto the water so all her problem will be solved. Her neighbor, a member of our branch church in Simrahani, saved her and her disabled son. While we were there for relief she comes to us. We gave her flood relief.
Today, I challenge the Tikapur community to help these flood affected people. We able to gather some clothes and other resources. I believe that there will be some more things are coming. We found out there are 167 family all together who lost house and everything in the flood. We really want to help these families.
