The following was initially shared on their Facebook page. Asia’s Hope has several orphan homes in northern India, a region bordering Nepal.
The entire Himalayan region been shaken by a massive earthquake, centered near Kathmandu, Nepal. The city and especially the surrounding towns and villages have been utterly devastated, with destruction reaching as far as neighboring India, including the regions surrounding Darjeeling and Assam.
The leaders in our network, many of whom are now unreachable or impossible to contact, are on the front-lines of this crises. Please continue to uphold them in your prayers, interceding for their safety and the safety of their loved ones.
Because of these indigenous leaders and organizations in our network, Asia’s Hope is responding to this crises, prioritizing grassroots, orphan-focused relief efforts — we will distribute 100% of the funds we receive to Nepali and Indian leaders connected to Asia’s Hope who are already caring for orphaned children and those caring for children orphaned by the earthquake.
Please consider making a generous gift. We will provide ongoing updates as we raise and distribute these badly needed funds.
