'60 minutes in a phoneless, noiseless, lonely room': A 16 year old recounts their first Prayer Room experience  Isaac Heather  16th Aug

I’m 16 and I just spent my first hour in a prayer room.

But the threat of more landslides and floods continues as the monsoons persist.

So far, 44,000 people have been evacuated. Many residents are unwilling to leave as authorities attempt to evacuate the danger zones. They have had to force some out of their homes to ensure their safety. Water levels in these areas have already risen above the danger mark. 

Pray for Bihar and other affected regions:
