*** 05/12/15 Update: A second earthquake, this one registering 7.3, has hit Nepal this morning. There are at least 66 people dead in this latest disaster. This is in addition to the 8000 who are confirmed dead from the earthquake two weeks ago. The links below will direct you to charities who are on the ground providing direct relief in Nepal***
As an organization, it’s important that we extend help and hope in Jesus’ name amid the devastation in Nepal. Further, we want to help those organizations who are already on the scene. We believe that by equipping them with the necessary financial support we can make the biggest and most immediate impact.
Coincidentally (actually, according to author/speaker David Platt, providentially) Baptist Global Response recently completed disaster-relief training in Kathmandu and was on the streets immediately.

Samaritan’s Purse also has an international team on the ground, and we put them forward without reservation as another organization worthy of your support.
