Earthquake in Nepal


As you will no doubt be aware there has been a devastating series of earthquakes in Nepal, a country where Bright Hope World has several partners.


We are delighted to advise that we have verified that our partners are safe, and are in a position to work directly on the ground with the thousands of people that are suffering and need support.

We have already made some funds available to our partners and if you feel moved to support this situation, see the details below.

Urgency is a real factor here so we want to move as quickly as we can.

One of our partners there emailed us yesterday saying:

"With two mega earthquakes and a series of subsequent waves rattling the nation, most of the people across the country have been compelled to live under temporary tents on any available open ground and put up on highways or public parks. As of Monday afternoon, the government still had not been able to deliver basic necessities to many affected families even in Kathmandu. Because the markets and shops have mostly remained closed in most areas, people have been forced to survive on snacks like noodles and biscuits. We are coordinating immediate rescue and relief services in Kathmandu."

"The urgent needs are: safe shelters, basic food, water, medicine (our clinic manpower and medicine are being locally used now along with other organisations) and giving counselling. We would appreciate your help on any of these area."


Please pray about whether this is something you can support.

You can make an online donation or you can send a cheque to PO Box 8928, Riccarton, Christchurch 8440 or direct credit funds into our account (02-0800-0733739-02 : Ref Nepal Appeal).
