Provide Relief For Those Affected By The Earthquake

CHURCH RESPONDING TO NEEDS IN NEPAL

On April 25, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake shook central Nepal, destroying entire communities, killing more than 8,000 people, displacing more than 500,000 people, and leaving millions in need of hope and security. Weeks later, on May 12, a 7.3-magnitude quake also struck eastern Nepal, near Mt. Everest. Now, Nepal no longer shows up as a news headline. But the Church of the Nazarene continues to respond.

 

In the weeks following the earthquakes, the church in Nepal distributed more than 25 tons of relief aid. Food, water filters, tents, and tarps were delivered to communities in need where people were without the most basic needs. Now, the church is walking alongside families and communities as they transition from relief to recovery.

 

The most immediate priority is to help vulnerable families rebuild their homes. Next, the church will work to expand its already successful child-focused community development model, which combines child development centers for children and opportunities for families to interrupt the cycle of poverty through activities such as self-help groups, small business development, backyard gardens, and life skills training. Together, these will help address the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of children and their families.

 

Your donations will provide for long-term recovery efforts in the months to come.

 

The Church of the Nazarene has a strong presence in Nepal. There are more than 300 Nazarene churches and church plants, with more than 8,000 members in Nepal. The church has strong community development programs, and the response effort is taking place through local churches that are already connected to their communities, as well as new communities where the church has plans for long-term development programs. NCM supports 13 church-led child development centers serving 1,275 children, and there are ongoing food-security, nutrition, and economic development projects. The church in Nepal has worked to provide for the immediate needs of families affected by the earthquakes and will still be there to walk alongside children, families, and communities on the difficult road to recovery long after all the emergency relief efforts have ended.
