Rain is a problem for Christ Public School. Some of the classes are held in an outdoor courtyard area. So when there is a lot of rain, classes must be cancelled for that day.
In addition to the outdoor courtyard, the school has had a new problem for the past two months. Due to heavy rains when the new school year began in August, part of the roof in one classroom collapsed. The holes in the roof become larger every time it rains more.
Principal Amin Issac stated, “We have again rain on 27 sep
night and 28 sep day. Today on 30 again it rained at 11:00am to 1:00 pm; and at 11:15 am I closed school due to rain. Keep us in your prayers. Amen”
These photos show the extremely poor condition of the roof. The entire roof needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
But in spite of this concern, classes continue to be held as much as possible. Also, as you saw in our previous posts, Christ Public School recently provided flood relief to another community that was devastated by heavy flooding. Everyone tries to help each other in any way they can, ignoring their own problems for the moment.
Principal Amin Issac has faith that God will help them get enough funds to repair the school buildings, especially the roof. If you feel you would like to help with this project, please see our DONATE page for how to send funds by Western Union.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
Update 5 Oct. 2013: Great news! Thanks to a private donor who responded to this need, $200 was sent to Amin yesterday. Soon the roof and also a broken gate will be repaired. Praise God! It is still the dream to someday have a better school building with enough indoor classrooms so that all classes can continue during all types of weather.
