Food & Water Aid for Nepali Earthquake Victims

“My children are traumatized by the sight of seeing many of our neighbors killed in the earthquake. Hundreds of our neighbors are camped out in our front yard.”

These are the words of our National Leader, Kiran as we talked on the phone a few minutes ago.

I am sure you are aware the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Nepal two days ago has been followed by over 100 after shocks. In Kathmandu, our leader reports there is no one in the hospitals because they are sleeping in the open air. The roads are blocked; food and water are becoming very rare.

As of this writing over 5,000 are confirmed dead, but that number is expected to go up.

GHNI has been working in Nepal for several years. Our staff will soon stabilize their families and continue reaching out beyond their own neighborhoods to engage in the national effort. Our plan is to do a general assessment on nearby villages where up to 95% of the homes have been destroyed. Preliminary evaluations reveal water and food will be greatly needed as the crisis of moving the dead and wounded winds down in the next few days.

GHNI is gearing up to provide water and food, especially to the villages outside Kathmandu that are out of reach to many. The uniqueness of GHNI’s mission is we also commit to helping villages be rebuilt, alongside residents, and move towards sustainable transformation after the rehab phase.

We will focus on using local resources of food and water first, so we don't disrupt local economies.

Our staff workers desperately need your help!

Whether you can help with $50 or $500 or $5,000 your compassionate response is greatly appreciated. We will keep you updated every few weeks on our results.

On behalf of these precious lives,

Thank you!
