Urgent prayer and support for missing sponsored children in Nepal
Dodd Road has close links to the child sponsorship charity Stand by me, we recently received this urgent plea...
Stand by Me has been caring for needy children in Nepal since 2010 in our homes in Hetauda. On Saturday a devastating earthquake hit Nepal, causing destruction on a massive scale and the death of over 3,000 people. It is the worst earthquake to hit Nepal in its history. Homes, hospitals and schools have been destroyed and thousands of people are at risk.
When the earthquake struck, many of our children were visiting their families for the Easter holidays. Our immediate concern is that while some have returned safely to our home, the great majority are still unaccounted for.
Early reports inform us that many of the homes where our children come from, remote in the mountains, have been damaged or completely destroyed.
We need your help.
In Hetauda where we have our Stand by Me children’s homes, many people have tragically lost their lives. Properties, including our girls’ home have suffered severe damage. Our children and staff are currently sleeping in tents in our compound.
We urgently need help to stand by the children, their families and their remote communities, to provide food, clean water, shelter and help them rebuild their lives from the rubble and despair. You can donate here, or by phoning us on 0845 6045543.
Please pray for our staff and children and their families that God will keep them safe and meet their needs.
