Baptist Global Response (BGR) will partner with a local coalition of churches in Kathmandu to assess and fill needs in Nepal.
“Right now, we’re looking at, potentially, some tarps and maybe some hygiene items,” he says. “That may change a little bit when we get outside the city and see needs out there.”
BGR teams are starting to assess relief needs in Nepal in the aftermath of a massive 7.8 earthquake that shook Kathmandu Valley April 25. An initial $50,000 has been released to assist with the first-stage response.
