Nepal Recovery and Rebuild Program

GVN is busy developing a recovery and rebuild program for when the immediate relief operations are over. We expect to take a group of volunteers (or multiple groups depending on demand and need) to Nepal as soon as is practical and possible to disburse funds and materials and to plan for further recovery operations.
