Ever since I first heard about the 7.8 magnitude earthquake and how devastating that was to Nepal, I felt compelled to do something. My husband Larry and I are heading a team of volunteers from International Children's Network to offer love and encouragement to the victims of this horrible incident. We are leading a travel team of 20, leaving from Oregon and going to Nepal where we will camp at a local facility about 8 miles from Kathmandu.
All we can think about are the precious children, specifically the orphans who have become displaced and scared by this situation. Our team will be helping to assess damages to the orphans homes and are able to help with any repairs they need. This specific orphan home we are going to houses 150 children, who we are sure have been changed by this event. This photo is of some of the children.
This seems like a very peaceful country, full of loving people and now their world has been turned upside down. They are in need of our help. Lack of food, shelter, drinking water.. there is much we can do to help them.
While we are there, we will be taking more photos of the work we are doing there. By donating to our Move Your Mountain campaign, you will be helping us fulfill this mission in a huge way. Together, we can make a major difference in each others lives, especially these children. Thank you and please share!
