NEPAL FLOOD APPEAL – AUGUST 2017
Today, through the World Hunger Fund, BIC Canada (soon to be the Be In Christ Church of Canada) released $10,000.00 for immediate aid and relief in Nepal. Our BIC brothers and sisters in Nepal are suffering in the midst of significant flooding as the result of heavy monsoon rains. As a result of the rains, over 100 people have died in Nepal and hundreds of villages have experienced flooding.
I spoke with Shemlal Hembrom (leader of the Nepalese church) on Sunday night. He reports significant flooding in villages where BIC communities exist, more damage to the SPICE Hostel (a BIC home for boys and girls) and people losing their houses. Due to power outages and reduced internet I have been unable to speak with brother Shemlal since.
We are asking the people and churches of BIC Canada to consider helping meet the needs of our brothers and sisters in Nepal. You can do so by giving to BIC Canada online and directing the funds to the World Hunger Fund.
The needs are significant. Your gift directly helps a fellow human being in one of the neediest countries in the world. Thank you.
– Donations can also be made by mail. Please make your cheque payable to BIC Canada 2700 Bristol Circle, Oakville, ON L6H 6E1 with the memo: World Hunger Fund – Nepal
