Flooded and Hungry

In the first post about the fierce rains and floods that have been battering the Bay of Bengal coast the last few days, photos show standing water, swimming buffalo and a general, uncomfortable sogginess. This morning, Fr. Varghese wrote that he and his faithful have been taking warm packets of food out and around to the hungry.
Shops have been closed, power out, and people have run out of food, said Fr. Varghese, explaining why distributing life-giving rice and lentils is so crucial.
