Although Cyclone Phailin was one of the greatest disasters of 2013, it has been forgotten by many. The storm damaged or destroyed 800,000 homes, and many people lost every earthly possession they owned. Now, hundreds of Gospel for Asia Compassion Services workers are helping these people rebuild their lives.
The original plan was to rebuild 200 homes, but it has since increased to 1,000. Teams also plan to provide education for affected children through GFA Bridge of Hope and continue giving victims basic necessities. Through it all, our workers pray that many will see and understand the love of Christ.

Since 1979, GFA has existed to fulfill one passion: seeing communities in Asia discover the same joy, hope and lasting peace we’ve found in Christ.
We serve to equip missionaries to minister throughout Asia. The projects funded through myGFA each play a significant part in helping missionaries serve more effectively and in transforming communities with the love of Christ.
