In response to recent severe flooding on the west coast of Sri Lanka, FM church leaders there were able to distribute some emergency aid to church-related families.

In all, 44 families in 5 different congregations were aided. Food provisions were the main item distributed along with roofing sheets and school materials for children that had been destroyed or washed away in the flooding. The flooding happened in the area close by the capital city of Colombo, where the FMC has several congregations with believers having limited material resources. Several families in these churches will require significant repair to their homes before reoccupying.
