Global Peace Foundation Call to Action

The Global Peace Foundation is deeply saddened by the property destruction and loss of life from the tremblor and extends its deepest condolences to the people of Nepal.

In a statement, GPF President James Flynn urged the international community to commit not only to immediate relief for the disaster-stricken nation, but also to its long-term recovery.

“Nepal has a rich cultural heritage and resilient people, and is certainly profoundly impacted by this catastrophe. Now is an important time to demonstrate our concern for all in our human family, by responding quickly with disaster relief, but also by committing our support to the people of Nepal for their long-term recovery.

“We are actively engaging our international partners and GPF chapters in Nepal and India to determine the most appropriate response and support that can assist in long-term recovery. We join with organizations and individuals around globe in prayers and expressions of solidarity and support for the people of Nepal and South Asia.”
