As a first response to this disaster, $25,000 in emergency relief funds from One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) has been released to trusted partners of American Baptist International Ministries (IM) in Nepal. Additional relief aid is urgently needed.
This initial grant of $25,000 for the first phase of relief efforts will go to Nepal’s Baptist churches, to a Nepali Christian development organization and the United Mission to Nepal. The Nepal Baptist Church Council (NBCC), an IM partner for more than 20 years, will receive $10,000 for food, water, shelter and medical attention for the victims. The Nepali organization, Human Development and Community Services (HDCS), an IM partner for 11 years, will receive $10,000 to help its two hospitals care for the injured. The United Mission to Nepal (UMN), an IM partner for over 30 years, will receive $5,000 for its initial relief efforts.
