We thank God that our home and family survived the earthquake that hit Nepal on the 25th of April. However, the same cannot be said of the rest of our community or our country. As of recent reports, more than 8,600 people have been killed; over 19,000 have been injured; over 800,000 homes have been badly damaged or destroyed; and an estimated 2.5 million people are homeless. The Mendies Haven family is committed to help to rebuild our community and provide much needed food, water and resources to directly affected by the earthquake.
Your support has already enabled us to distribute supplies, start a soup kitchen, and begin to help several villages. We are now focusing on helping families build temporary shelters in preparation for the coming monsoon rains.
For over 60 years, Mendies Haven has been a home for orphaned and abandoned children in Nepal and a beacon in the community. Mendies Haven is a registered non-profit organization in Nepal.
The Sangam Fellowship is a US 501(c)3 non-profit organization set up to support Mendies Haven. The Sanskrit word Sangam means confluence, or the coming together. We ask you to join together with us to provide support to those in desperate need for it now.
