After conferred with Pastor Ruben Rasaili that In view of the serious situation in many remote places, Feed the Hungry offered to provide 2,000 survivors
instead of the original 500-1000 to receive food care, we want to ensure all the survivors under Pastor Ruben’s care are safe with clean water and hot
food, a roof above their heads, warm blankets in the night time. First relief distribution is in the Gorkha district. This area still experiences regular
aftershocks. People very scared (including Pastor Ruben’s relief team), people are sleeping outdoors, in the forests. Infrastructure is poor, some towns are
a seven hour walk from the main road. Pack animals will be needed to carry in supplies. In just 2 days Pastor Ruben drove through 7 districts in search of
It is raining in the Kathmandu valley; monsoon season is coming up. Pastor Ruben is organizing distributions.
Gorkha is located northwest of Kathmandu. It is a mountainous area where the earthquake epicenter was located. Pastor Ruben has shared with us that the
damage is extensive, homes are destroyed.
Please pray for our relief team as well as Pastor Ruben’s relief team, this relief effort is very difficult due to the local government’s response to
emergency relief work is very cool. Logistic-wise Nepal is not an easy place to reach. Many major and minor rescue teams are experiencing difficulties to
reach the survivors especially those in remote areas.
We invite you to lay aside HK$450 this week to help a desperate family that going through heartache of loosing everything, of not knowing where the next
meal will come from, may experience loss of dear relatives or friends.Please empower Feed the Hungry to serve the critically needy people with emergency
supplies to tie them over the first phrase of survival.
May the Lord bless you and reward your heart of caring,
