Shanghai churches supported Zhuozhou in Hebei, which was suffering from a flood disaster caused by a typhoon.
On August 4, Zhuozhou, Hebei, was attacked by a terrible flood after the heavy rainfall caused by Typhoon Doksuri. A large area of Zhuozhou was affected, where people’s lives and financial safety were under huge challenges.
Knowing from the local churches that people in Zhuozhou were in bad need of post-disaster medicine, Hongkou District CC&TSPM in Shanghai harshly went to prepare.
They collected some stomach treatment medicine, a Chinese herbal formula called Huoxiang Zhengqi, vitamin C, as well as 84 disinfectant chlorine effervescent tablets and medical hydrogen peroxide. The medicine was delivered quickly to Zhuozhou, especially to the flood-stricken area in Laishui County, relieving the urgent medical shortage in time.
Hongkou Christians will continue to keep an eye on the disaster situation, and further help is always ready.
