The Mission Co-ordinator of Cambodian Communities out of Crisis has told us of a threat to this year’s distribution of Christmas gifts to Cambodian children by Operation Christmas Child.
Please pray that that every administrative, bureaucratic and logistical obstacle will be cleared away, each shoebox sent to Cambodia will reach a needy child and each child will have the opportunity to hear about the real meaning of Christmas.
One of a network of dams in the Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy hydroelectric power project in Laos has collapsed, resulting in deaths, injuries and widespread flooding affecting thousands of families.
On 26 July, the Stung Treng provincial authority was working around the clock to evacuate about 25,000 residents in its Siem Pang district affected by flooding from the collapsed dam. The Sekong River water level, directly fed by the flooding, had reached 11.98 m at 10:30 am on 26 July, inundating 17 villages of four communes in the district.
