AsiaCMS have worked alongside our Nepalese co-mission partners to help in relief and rehabilitation efforts in Nepal.
Relief materials like food items, tents and zinc sheets were provided in different parts of Nepal specially for the earthquake-affected areas of Dhading, Dolkha, Gorkha, Ramechhap and Nuwakot.We are thankful to God and for the generosity of His people, which allowed us to be a blessing in a small way to help the earthquake victims to have food and shelter as they pieced their lives back together.
We were also encouraged by the support of the South Asia Christian Youth Network (SACYN) youths from India who raised support from their churches and friends for SACYN Alumni in Nepal to provide food and essential supplies to the affected people.
As we move forward, Nepal is facing another big challenge in the form of economic blockages resulting from political unrest caused by aspects of the new constitution, which are deemed unfair to some ethnic groups on the borders between India and Nepal.
This has led to an acute shortage of petroleum products and essential commodities which were imported from India into Nepal.
Reconstruction of infrastructure is still a pressing need, as many homes, institutional buildings and churches need extensive repairs and reconstruction.
Our co-mission partners are committed to meeting this need, and we would really value support which can be raised to help fulﬁl this key task.
Please continue to keep Nepal in your prayers, both for the earthquake relief as well as for cessation of the unrest and shortages, which are now leading to geopolitical challenges.
