Brazil Flooding 5/22

Starting on 28th April, Southern Brazil was hit by heavy rains, causing widespread landslides and a hydroelectric dam to partially collapse. The following week, the river rose to record heights once again, due to the continued rains.
The catastrophic flooding affected 2.3 million people and left almost 600,000 homeless.
This has come to be Brazil’s worst flooding in 80+ years and has left 806 injured, 161 confirmed dead, and 82 still missing.
In some areas, the water is not expected to recede for at least a month, due to the ongoing rainy season. The destruction is widespread and in many places there’s nothing left but mud where houses once stood.
We currently have a small team on the ground meeting with contacts and seeing how we can help with the response. Pray for the people who have been affected by the flooding and for discernment for our team.
