NEPAL – Devastated families are in desperate need of help in the wake of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal.
Survivors of the deadly quake are taking refuge in tent cities, either homeless or too terrified sleep indoors. But temperatures drop dangerously low at night and basic necessities like clean water and food are scarce.
Operation Blessing is responding in Nepal with a focus on meeting the critical need for safe drinking water and medical aid. OBI’s vice president of international operations, David Darg, has transported hand-held chlorination units from the United States. These units will produce a high-grade chlorine solution that can be used to disinfect large amounts of water—making it safe to drink.
Please join us in praying for the families impacted by the tragic loss of life and homes in the Kathmandu area.
