You can help Elevate the people of Nepal! You can help Elevate the people of Nepal!

5 Ways You Can Help Elevate Nepal

We’re so grateful for the amazing response of our friends around the world to bring hope to the people of Nepal. Here are 5 simple ways you can help elevate Nepal.

1. Stay Informed

Nepal is nestled between China and India, surrounded by the majestic Himalayan Mountains. Being isolated from the rest of the world, it is often overlooked and forgotten.

What many people don’t know is that Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia. An earthquake of this magnitude crumbled their delicate infrastructure and will hinder cultural advancement. Stay informed on our response here.

2. Share Their Story

Many have begun to show their support for Nepal survivors by posting their own creative content to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We’ve put together a graphic to help you get you in on spreading hope using #ElevateNepal.

Click on the image below and save it to your phone. Then ask a friend to snap a picture of you showing your support.

Elevate Nepal Phone

You can say something like:

“The people of Nepal have lost so much in this earthquake but together we can #ElevateNepal! Get involved with @ConvoyofHope and check out”

Or if you’re a tweeter:

“Join me in helping survivors of the Nepal earthquake. Partner w/ @ConvoyofHope #ElevateNepal”

3. Donate to Convoy of Hope

Everyone can play a part in elevating Nepal. Donate what’s possible and remember even a $10 goes a long ways.

4. Pray for the Nepalese

Pray for protection and encouragement into the lives of the Nepalese and those responding to this crisis. Never underestimate the power of prayer.

5. Join Together with Friends

The elevation begins with you! Take it upon yourself to make a lasting impact on the people of Nepal.

Sign up to fundraise. Invite friends, family, and coworkers to get in on the action with personal messages. Share the graphics and the resilience of the Nepalese people. Together Nepal will rise again!

Tornado strikes northern Illinois; Disaster Services team en route

10:39:42 PM

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team will be in Rochelle in the early morning hours ready to start processing local volunteers. They will be taking debris removal supplies and gear to help coordinate volunteer efforts in the areas affected by the storm.

12:17:44 PM

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services has a team en route to northern Illinois where a strong tornado destroyed dozens of homes. The team will connect with local contacts to see if Convoy of Hope can be of any help to survivors of the storm. The tornado, with 150 mph winds, hit the tiny town of Fairdale, Ill., wiping some homes off their foundations. Media reports say that 11 people have been hospitalized.

As tornado season nears its peak in the U.S., the Disaster Services team continues to closely monitor storm development and implement response plans when warranted. Updates on the situation in Illinois will be posted here as information from the team becomes available.
