So far, over 8,000 people have perished from the earthquake which wrecked Nepal on ANZAC Day. The death toll continues to rise as devastation on the ground remains very wide. Individuals and congregations can help directly, now.
The Presbyterian Church is significantly involved in The Bethel Children’s Home an orphanage of 16 children in Kathmandu, through Revesby Presbyterian Church in NSW.
Jeewan Adhikari is the pastor of the local Samdan Church who manages the children’s home. He has this week written about their troubled circumstances in a letter that can be seen in full with photos by clicking here. Please take the time to read it.
We praise God that no child or staff member was killed but their daily existence is now horrendous.
Kindly share this information widely and pray for those who have lost so much. If you are able to give funds they can be deposited directly into a trust account which is solely for this ministry and will be transferred to Pastor Jeewan for this purpose promptly.
