As the devastation from the earthquake in Nepal becomes clearer, we have seen an incredible response from the U.S. government, American NGOs and the business community.
Terrible events like this remind us of the critical role our nation plays in humanitarian response around the world. Our ability to deploy resources quickly to disaster zones is an expression of fundamental American values of compassion toward the needy and suffering, as well as our global leadership.
USGLC members were among the first to respond. Here’s a quick snapshot of the life-saving efforts of our government, USGLC members, and partners in Nepal:
