On April 25, a catastrophic 7.8-magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal. Thousands lost their lives and at least 480,000 houses were destroyed. An estimated 2.8 million people have been displaced, including hundreds of thousands who are afraid to return to their houses.

We work in the Name of Jesus, ministering to those who are suffering and reaching out with care, compassion, and the hope of Christ.
