EPC recommends two agencies for Nepal earthquake donations


EPNewsNepalEarthquakeReliefIn the wake of the devastating April 25 earthquake in Nepal, the EPC is recommending World Relief and One Challenge (OC International Ministries) as relief agencies to which donations can be sent. OC International has been a co-op agency with the EPC for many years and has a significant presence in Nepal.

“It is hard to comprehend the level of destruction and need,” said Jeff Jeremiah, EPC Stated Clerk. “Ministries in Nepal—like One Challenge—that desperately want to minister to their neighbors are themselves suffering from the destruction and lack of basic resources.”

Churches and individuals can donate to relief efforts in any of three ways:

More than 5,500 people died in the magnitude-7.8 earthquake, and more than 11,000 were injured. The United Nations estimates that the disaster has affected 8 million people.

    Glad to hear it, but we’ve already linked up with Samaritan’s Purse. We needed to make bulletin inserts for this Sunday so had to decide which agency to support. An earlier notification from the EPC would have led us to a different choice, in all probability.

      While we endorse those two organizations, there are many others (including Samaritan’s Purse) that are doing great work and meeting both physical and spiritual needs. Blessings to you!
