NEPAL EARTHQUAKE DISASTER RELIEF FUND 
 

 
 
Saturday, April 25, Nepal was devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that leveled much of the small country located between India and China and is the home of Mt. Everest. Many of Nepal's 30.5 million people are mostly Buddhist.
 
After hearing about the depths of this event, many Southern Baptists have expressed interest in financially supporting Southern Baptist relief work in Nepal. The needs are extensive and as of now, the death toll is creeping toward 6,000 with those injured nearing 11,000. As is so often the case, Southern Baptists - and Tennessee Baptists - are rising to the occasion to alleviate suffering and to share the light of the Gospel. Many relief teams have already been activated and the Tennessee Baptist Convention's disaster relief teams are on standby to send aid and teams in June.
 
Any contributions you make through the TBC will support these relief teams, and any funds not used to support Tennessee's response will be forwarded to Baptist Global Response.
