Severe flooding threatens ACC parishes and school
Flooding in India and Pakistan this week have left hundreds dead and displaced thousands, as rivers continue to rise.
Though heavy rains are common in the monsoon season, inhabitants of the area surrounding the Jhelum and Chenab Rivers were surprised by the severity of the flood. In Pakistan, the military has been assisting in relief efforts, rescuing 970 people in Punjab in a single day.
Flooding has hit ACC parishes in Narowal and Gujranwala hard, where at least one building has collapsed when its foundations were undermined. Services have been canceled and students at St. Mary's school have been sent home to be with their families.
Bishop-Elect Andrew has been able to visit some families in the affected areas, where he and his ministers provided food and emergency supplies.
