Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Nepal this week. We are grateful for the many humanitarian first responders who will be helping in the coming weeks and months. Our deep concern is with the humanitarian staff already working in these regions. Many have lost friends and family. Many will be living in temporary shelters while their organizations fight to bring assistance to others. Our hope is that they find sources of strength, support and assistance when they need it most.
We are currently involved in remote preparation of first responder teams who will be on the ground soon. In the coming weeks, we will provide remote support, as needed, and will debrief teams as they exit the immediate response.
These are a few resources commonly distributed to local teams in the midst of disasters.
