Baptists respond to earthquake in Nepal

Baptist Global Response is starting to assess relief needs in Nepal in the aftermath of a massive 7.8 earthquake that shook Kathmandu Valley on Saturday, April 25. An initial $50,000 has been released to assist with the first-stage response.

“BGR teams are on the ground and beginning to put a more definitive plan in place for assessing the damage and need,” said Pat Melancon, BGR’s managing director of disaster response and training.

“The teams will examine the overall need and decide how we can best respond, with a focus on providing what is needed to sustain life during the initial stages of the relief operation.”
