report Baptist World Aid

Baptist World Aid (BWAid) has sent an initial sum of US$10,000 to aid victims of flooding in Mexico.

The floods, rising to as high as 19 feet, occurred last week when the Grijalva River burst its banks in Tabasco in southern Mexico, and have displaced approximately 800,000 persons.

"Because of the heavy rains and the flood, the people have lost all their belongings - houses, vehicles, food, clothes, and personal items," C.P. Raul Castellanos Fernandez, Chief Executive Officer of the National Baptist Convention of Mexico (CNBM), said.
