World Neighbors has worked in Nepal during the past 5 decades. Our immediate response has already begun. We have an extensive network of rural communities in at least 11 districts that need our urgent help.
Until now, reporting has been limited to the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. As we are finding out through initial reports of people on the ground, it is in the rural areas where even greater destruction has occurred.
In the short term, World Neighbors will concentrate on health, shelter, water and food. World Neighbors will remain active in rural Nepali communities when first responders leave. Multi-pronged, participative development efforts will continue as part of the collaborative process of creating independent, sustainable communities.
To strengthen our efforts we need much greater financial support. Please donate.
