Brighton Pastor helps Nepal quake victims
A CHURCH PASTOR from Brighton has returned from a three-week stint supporting victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal.
Rev Christy Smith, Senior Pastor of Brighton Elim Church, was helping Elim Relief Association partnering with United Vision Nepal. The aim was to deliver aid donated by Elim churches in the UK and Christy was sent to the North Gorkha area.
“We were able to help over 45,000 people in 10 villages in the most badly hit areas,” said Christy. “The delivered supplies were much needed as in most badly affected areas people lost everything.
“One five-month-old baby injured by the quake and rescued by a helicopter had to have brain surgery.”
