Monday marks the one-year anniversary of the Nepal earthquake. The magnitude 7.8 quake killed 8,000 people and injured 21,000.

World Concern, a Shoreline-based Christian humanitarian organization, responded to the disaster, and was the first agency to reach some remote mountain communities with emergency supplies, food, and shelter materials in the days, weeks, and months after the quake.

Because of the outpouring of support from donors, World Concern was able to assist 24,276 people this past year, either directly or through partners.

“I am so thankful for the thousands of people that joined us in supporting the recovery efforts in Nepal. Donations were made immediately, and our partnerships in the U.S., Canada and in Nepal enabled a quick response,” said Chris Sheach, Deputy Director of Disaster Response. 
“The road to recovery is a long one, and we will continue to work with our Nepalese partners in building the resilience of their people.”
