EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL:  WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?

Thousands are dead or injured from the massive earthquake and aftershocks that shook Nepal and neighboring countries on April 25th.  The quake, the worst in more than 80 years, struck just west of the capital of Kathmandu and destroyed towns and mountainous villages.  The government of Nepal has officially requested international assistance and declared a state of emergency.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance's (PDA) local partners through ACT Alliance have been working in Nepal for several years and are on the ground assisting many who
have survived the quake by distributing immediate life-saving supplies such as water, food, shelter and medication.

PDA is committed to the long-term response.  As long-term recovery plans are developed, PDA will accompany and further financially support our partners in the area
to ensure a comprehensive recovery is sustained. If you would like to help contribute to the restorative work of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program, write a check to “Community Presbyterian Church of Ben Avon” and write in the memo “PDA” or “Nepal” and we will send one check from our church.

Please try to have your contributions in by May 17th.  You can put in the offering plate or send to the church with attention to Tracey Mundorf.

Let us together pray for God to be at work through the hands and hearts of those on the ground helping people survive, bury their dead, and begin to rebuild their lives.
