WILL YOU HELP US?

The severe disaster due to strong earthquakes on April 25th and 26th and May 12th left the population of Nepal in great fear and panic. In addition, storms and rains caused many power cuts, bad internet connections and communications. The water is not yet safe to drink. Many families have no shelter than tents which are highly vulnerable to the season’s heavy rains and winds. People lost all hope to rebuild their houses. In rural villages in the mountains, farmers lost their livestock and seeds for the next crops.

EWM team explored 250 villages to see the needs in order to help more effectively the villagers. Our target is to reach 3000 families with relief assistance and medical support.

This is a great challenge for churches and individuals. Will you help us to take up this challenge and reach Nepalese people with God’s love? A small or large gift will enable us to help many people in this dark hour.

Before the earthquake, drinking water was quite scarce in Kathmandu. But now the situation is getting worse. Days after the disaster, the price of bottled water doubled. Every day, our staff is giving fresh water to the children of EWM home in reasonable quantities.

Another major earthquake hit Nepal this Tuesday!

A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck Nepal on this Tuesday near Mount Everest. At least 50 people have been killed and more than thousand injured. A number of buildings have collapsed. India reported 17 dead people, mainly in Bihar State. China reported one dead woman.

This new tragedy happened just two weeks after 8000 have died in a magnitude 7.8 quake. Once again, the population of Nepal found themselves rushing outside, looking for open space, scared and confused.

This latest quake did not affect EWM children’s home. The children and the staff are safe. As we said in our previous post, the children are staying outside and sleeping under a tent because of the many frequent aftershocks.

We value your continue prayers for EWM team. Not only they rescue and help the victims but they also share God’s love and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need your support more than ever in this situation.
