Widespread flooding: these helpless animals still await rescue and care

by Leticia Tau Valente Silva in England, United Kingdom

Rio Grande do Sul - Brazil's southernmost state - is bigger than the UK alone, and after continuous heavy rains, it is currently being affected by widespread flooding. According to CNN Brasil, nearly 90% of its cities have already been affected by the floods.

BBC states "At least 85 people died in the floods and about 150,000 have been displaced from their homes, officials said. Further heavy rains forecast for this week are expected to further exacerbate the situation in the region."

It is heartwarming to see how many families and animals have already been rescued by locals and volunteers. However, many still await rescue, often standing on top of whatever is left of their homes - cold, thirsty and hungry.

It is also great to watch major influencers like @badincolono raise funds to support our people, but with this fundraiser, I hope to show support to our precious animals too – they always hold a special place in my heart. Always.

Below are the volunteers who I'd like to support with your donations. Check out their work on Instagram:

You do not need a “pix” to donate, which is usually where the issue lies with donating directly to them (from different places in the world). Crowdfunder accepts a few forms of payment, making it easier for more people to donate – which encouraged me to start this fundraiser.

My heart aches for those who have died in the floods, and I pray for those who have lost everything. 

I pray for those who spare no effort to save all animals, the kind-hearted who donate today, and those who receive these donations - may God bless them and their work.

Psalms 23: "The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
