Episcopal Relief and Development Responds to Earthquake in Nepal
Episcopal Relief and Development is a trustworthy channel for meeting emergency needs, such as the Nepal earthquake, and ongoing needs around the world.

Episcopal Relief & Development is responding to immediate needs for food, shelter and clean water in earthquake-impacted Nepal through the ecumenical ACT Alliance, and is exploring further opportunities for action through other partners in the region.  The organization is in contact with the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia regarding its appeal for the work of the Deanery of Nepal (part of the Diocese of Singapore), and may also support partners in northern India and southwest China.

Please join me in this important work. You may read more here.
