Home built for HIV+ earthquake victim in Nepal

From the archive.

Among the thousands of people who lost their homes in the 2015 Nepal earthquake is Maya.

She and her father-in-law stayed in a tent for several days. They could not find shelter because Maya is HIV-positive.

“She was infected by her husband, who died 14 years ago, and now lives under a cloud of humiliation,” said Ram Prasad Shrestha, head of the National Mission Commission of Nepal and a CMS Timothy partner.

As winter approached, Maya and her father-in-law remained homeless and their lives were at risk.

NMCN stepped in and helped build her a house; they are now warm and thankful.

“We are ever thankful to God for enabling us to touch lives in the name of Christ,” said Ram Prasad.

NMCN has helped build more than 100 houses for earthquake victims.
