Situation Report #2 – April 28, 2015
As the situation in Nepal becomes more bleak, the HOPE worldwide school remains a hopeful light in Kathmandu. Volunteers at the school have been providing meals and shelter for those who have been displaced.
HOPE worldwide’s Director of Disaster Response, Charles Ham, is now in Nepal, bringing with him 50 blankets donated by HOPE worldwide Indonesia. An additional 6,000 blankets are expected to arrive later this week. Over the next several days Charles will travel around Nepal and meet with partners and officials to determine where HOPE worldwide can best provide assistance. (See Charles' video of landing in Kathmandu.)
On Thursday, Charles will travel to Pokhara, Nepal’s second largest city to assess damages. Pokhara also is home to one of our sister churches with 19 members. Following an assessment of the situation in Pokhara, he will then travel to Gorkha and Lamjung, some of the worst-hit areas with reports of villages that are totally flattened.
Please pray for the people of Nepal and help HOPE worldwide respond today.
HOPE worldwide needs your help in providing critical relief and supplies after a disaster strikes. Please give today.
