The construction work for the new children’s home is progressing well. The ground and first floors are completed. The remaining work, such as windows, doors, electrical fittings, plumbing and toilets, have yet to be done. We are trusting God for completion before the end of this year. We value your continued prayers. We thank our friends and partners for their love and prayers, as well as for their ongoing support toward the successful completion 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.
We demolished the existing building and we start the building construction of a new home which will accommodate 200 children, boys and girls. This new Home will have earthquake resistance standards.
