Nepal is experiencing massive flooding with over 100+ lives lost in the Kathmandu valley, as are other parts of Asia. These are pictures I took while there just 8 months ago. We landed in Kathmandu and started our journey through the #annapurnacircuit
It is heartbreaking that so many people on this planet go without basic needs; infrastructure, jobs, a way to make something or anything for themselves or their family. Visiting Nepal was eye opening and it was my favorite place I have ever been because of the people, the spiritual presence of the land and the pure love. How can we help Please let me know if you have ideas.
If you are in the Denver area, check out the Sherpa House Hike for Help program.
I’m still researching other ways.

💥BREAKING HOMELESSNESS STEREOTYPES💥
🏙️ The pressing issue of homelessness in Chicago is widely discussed, but there is debate as to just how many people are affected. The reality may be much worse than the annual point-in-time city measures, which do not factor in "doubling up". Regardless of the exact numbers, it is clear that many who do not have adequate housing are college educated and/or employed in some capacity.
💵 According to the Office of the Chicago Mayor, the city's minimum wage is $13 as of June 1, 2019. But, @nlihc reported that the living wage to afford a two-bedroom apartment is $23. With wages being barely over half of an estimated living wage, it is clear how deeply rooted this issue is.
❓ There has been talk of policy proposals in the past to reform the transfer tax system, but no legislation has come to fruition. What EXACTLY the best approach to Chicago's homelessness crisis may be is disagreed upon, but something must be done. #AffordableHousing

We experience crazy weather this time of year, so it's best to be prepared for what comes our way.
It is important for every business to have battery power backup, cloud data storage, and fail-over internet in case of an internet or power outage.
We've seen first hand the devestation caused by not having backup during these times. Visit us at our website (link in bio) to gain more information about what we have to offer and how we can help prepare your business for disaster relief!

Yesterday, FL Dept. of Agriculture & Consumer Services Commissioner @nikkifriedfl paid a special visit to @feedingsouthflorida ‘s #PalmBeach facility and @wpeccbs12 captured it all on camera! 🎥 Commissioner Fried hosted a roundtable discussion, with other local dignitaries, about food insecurity and was then put to work preparing disaster relief emergency food boxes! We’re so proud to work with Feeding South Florida and aide in their efforts to end food insecurity right here in South Florida. Together, we are #feedingsouthflorida.
We only have 12 more days to get our Disaster Relief trailers ready for their grand appearance, and they are looking pretty bare.
Please go to www.heritagecommunity.org, you will find a link on the home page. Click on it and see if there is anything listed that you can give. Items don't have to be new, only in good working condition. If it's more convenient to give a monetary offering, write "disaster relief" on the memo line of your check or on the outside of the envelope.
Don't forget Sunday, July 28th is the day we will fill these two trailers up. We hope you will be there and enjoy a hot dog lunch with us directly after worship service.

Controlling the elements is impossible. What can be controlled is the help you get during and after the elements. Whether it's finding a source of power, a strong tool for cleanup, or comfort in a reliable product, FIRMAN is there when disaster strikes.
Today we’re hanging with our disaster relief friends at the quarterly NCVOAD meeting. So hard to believe it’s been 10 months since #hurricaneflorence hit North Carolina! These organizations and agencies have been working tirelessly on a recovery that’s been extremely challenging, especially in light of the increasing number of big storms around the country. A huge shout out to these people who never give up. #disasterrelief #disasterrecovery #northcarolina

🇵🇷 #Loíza is a town and municipality on the northeastern coast of Puerto Rico. This area who's population is mainly #afrolatina was very special to me. We worked very hard on the efforts to fixing up Maria Vasquez house who has water damage from #hurricaneMaria This woman was so nice and sweet to us. As you look around the town though, you can still see the toll and devastation that the storm had to thr people here. Alot of you out there may think that it's been 2 years and the island has been restored....but it's not! People still need help. In particular, Loiza. As we worked, a handful of residents asked if we could help rebuild their homes, so that goes to show that there are many who still need us. And this is in just one section of the island. Imagine the countless others who we have not heard from. Please help those in need as we did and #volunteer go out and #serve and help #RebuildPuertoRico

Hello, #bookstagram friends!
I’m currently in Puerto Rico serving with the high schoolers from my church, helping out with disaster relief from Hurricane Maria that hit almost two years ago. So, there isn’t much book reading going on this week, but I’ll be back again to regular posting next week. Happy reading, everyone! #wanderinginreads

After disaster or conflict forces a family from their home, finding clean water that is safe to drink can be very difficult.
The water filters that ShelterBox sends to families can provide enough clean water for one month of drinking water for a family of five. These filters also stop letting water through once they are unable to fully clean the water, guaranteeing it is always safe to drink.
Mairamu and her family know the true importance clean water can have. Her children suffered from terrible stomach aches until they received a ShelterBox water filter, and now their stomach aches have all but disappeared.
"This filter has become our doctor. It puts an end to the problem of sickness that we had after drinking water." -- Mairamu from Cameroon.

Hurricane Barry made landfall on Saturday in Louisiana as a Category 1 storm, and it is the first hurricane to strike the U.S. this year. Barry dumped heavy rain on parts of Louisiana and Mississippi over the weekend, and potential flash flooding may threaten additional communities this week.
The American Red Cross is working with partners to support people along the Gulf Coast affected by Hurricane Barry. More than 400 Red Cross volunteers worked over the weekend and continue to provide safe shelter, warm meals and relief supplies to help people in need.
Sunday night, nearly 130 people stayed in five Red Cross and local community shelters in Louisiana and Mississippi. Altogether, 750 overnight stays have been provided to help people seeking refuge from Hurricane Barry. In addition to distributing critical relief supplies and providing emotional support, the Red Cross has worked with partners to serve more than 3,300 meals and snacks.

After learning of the worst floods in the state of Kerala, India, these 14-year-old girls created app AID, or, Aid In Disaster. One of the team members, Ellen (on the left) explains the thinking: “The biggest thing is after a disaster, people need information so that they don’t need to freak out, and they can be calm after the chaos... You don’t have to worry about resources coming in, you don’t have to worry about what to access. So pretty much, our app just helps organize all the information, so that’s not a priority, and saving people’s lives really is.” With the rise of these kinds of issues with #climatechange, the younger generations are really driving some life-saving work. 👊🏽 🌏 🏥 Link to their story on Waterloo Chronicle in our bio! #girlsintech #technology #tech #girlstech #devcode #coder #code #developer #programmer #programming #climate #disasterrelief #reliefapp
I know many of us want to assist in flood relief efforts but are unable, due to other obligations. Therefore, the best way here at Bow & Arrow was to give back by creating a 'KEARNEY STRONG' tee and donate our store profits to the Local Disaster Relief Fund, managed by the Kearney Community Foundation. We will have these v-neck tees AND a unisex crew neck tee by the end of the week. We will even have KIDS sizes!! What an easy way to give back!! These shirts will be $20 each! If you would like to reserve one please let us know! We hope these will go quickly and will show that we are KEARNEY STRONG!!! Thanks for supporting this local cause! #kearneystrong #kearneyareachamberofcommerce #lovelocal #shoplocal #floodrelief #giveback #disasterrelief #Kearneycommunityfoundation #nebraskastrong #wecare
