Rains & Floods in Pakistan

Disaster Relief

“Late monsoon rains in northern Pakistan have washed away communities, devastated farmland, and brought the risk of a ‘super-flood’ moving across the country, leaving millions of people potentially vulnerable,” our partners, with whom we have worked in the floods of 2010 and 2011, have reported.

Earthquake Relief in Yunnan, China

Saturday, August 2, 2014, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake rocked China's Yunnan province. Global Hope Network International announced immediate response to the disaster and was ready to move as soon as roads were cleared. GHNI will bring immediate relief needs to those furthest from major populations, allowing others, including China's Army and Medical teams, to work with the largest population.

Holy Land Violence Creates Orphans

An urgent email sent recently to Hal Jones, President of GHNI, from a GHNI leader in the *Holy Land stated:

“In the disaster area...more than 500 people are killed, 3500 injured, and ninety thousand people left their homes and evacuated up to this moment...there is lack of emergency medicine in hospitals. Everything you offer, it helps. Many children are orphans without families.

Comforting a Grieving Nation

From the desk of Mike Parks, GHNI’s Director of Disaster Relief

Syrian women have grieved often for the sons and husbands who have been killed in the fighting or executed by forces on either side of the conflict. These women weep not only for their lost sons, but they weep for themselves and their daughters, too.

They fled in search of safety and shelter, but now they find themselves exposed to exploitation. This happens in dusty refugee camps in Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon or overcrowded apartments in cities where the numbers of refugees grows every day.

Can We Help Relieve Syria’s Deep Sorrow?

Our disaster relief team is working hard to help Syrians displaced within the borders of their own country. Mike Parks, GHNI’s Director of Disaster Relief, shares the following realities with us:

The harsh and complex civil war in Syria continues. Even as there are talks going on in Geneva, millions of Syrians are suffering and a nation is being torn apart at its foundation.

Syria Disaster

Urgent Appeal from the President of GHNI

Dear Friends,

This is Hal Jones, President of GHNI. I just returned from another week in Jordan and meetings with our partners and friends in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan.  As a father and grandfather my heart was broken as we extended love and help to Syrians.
