Hoosiers are feeling the effects of the earthquake in Nepal and trying to assist how they can.

Adam Nevins is the executive director of Indianapolis-based ServLife and says his group has 74 pastors on the ground in Nepal, 13 of whom are based in Kathmandu. They build churches, care for children and fight poverty through micro-financing of local businesses in the region.

Nevins says his group’s orphanages in Kathmandu have been impacted.
