Crisis Care Kits
We Need Your Help to Respond to Vanuatu Communities in Need of Help
Cyclone Pam, a category-5 storm, left the island nation of Vanuatu in utter devastation after it made landfall late Friday, March 13. Eleven people have been confirmed dead, 30 people have been injured, and thousands have been displaced; and these numbers are expected to rise. Experts are predicting this storm will be known as one of the worst disasters the South Pacific region has ever seen.
Nampa First Church is joining the Nazarene Church in responding to this tragedy. Crisis like this is exactly what part of your Faith Promise dollars go for, and we as the Nazarene Church have an incredible and effectively efficient infrastructure in place to respond right away. We invite and urge you to help initially respond by putting together Crisis Care Kits. Here is how you can help:
