Praise the Lord! After many struggles, we finally started the building construction of the new children’s home. We are now up to the first floor. See in the Photos Gallery more pictures. We value your prayers for the fulfillment of this project!
Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world with almost one-third of its population living below poverty line. 50 % of Nepalese children are malnourished and stunted as a result of starvation and a lack of nutrition.
EWM is seeking to reach these needy, unreached people with the love of Jesus Christ. With this vision, a Children’s Home in a rented building has been opened and young lives are already being rescued from poverty, abuse, addiction and despair.
This building was a former primary school but it required some renovation. God led us to purchase this property. Our plans were to completely renew the existing building but sadly, when the second earthquake that hit Nepal on May 12 occurred, the building was quite badly damaged. There were cracks all over the building, and the toilets and compound walls collapsed. At present, we cannot use the building for security reasons and we thought it was safer for the children to be accommodated temporarely elsewhere.
We already demolished the existing building and we are building a new home which will accommodate 200 children, boys and girls. This new Home will have earthquake resistance standards.
