Nepal Earthquake: Six Months Later

The Rev. Daniel Rift

​Dear friend in Christ,

We remember and pray for all those affected by the Nepal earthquakes six months ago. Two powerful earthquakes struck the country, with hundreds of aftershocks, killing more than 8,500 and leaving millions of people in need of humanitarian assistance. As a church, through Lutheran Disaster Response, we have been and will continue to respond to the immediate and long-term needs of the people of Nepal.
Lutheran Disaster Response works with an extensive network of partners who are actively engaged with communities on the ground. Within days after the first earthquake, we were able to respond to those affected. And six months later, we are still there, continuing our work with The Lutheran World Federation, Lutheran World Relief and United Mission to Nepal.

The Nepal: six months later resource provides stories and more detail into our immediate response and a look toward the long-term work being carried out.

Through your prayers and financial support, you helped bring hope and healing to our Nepal neighbors in their time of need. Thank you. Please continue to pray for and support the people of Nepal as they continue to not only rebuild their homes, but their lives as well.
