Thousands of Nepalese have been killed by the devastating earthquake – the worst for 80 years.  The death toll continues to rise.  Thousands more are injured and millions will be affected by this shocking tragedy right across the country.  Several of the hillside villages astride the fault line have been badly hit.  So has Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara. 

It’s an National Emergency 

The immediate requirement is to send money to help provide clean water, food, shelter, clothing, sanitation and essential medical supplies.  The international aid agencies are fully involved in delivering humanitarian aid.  Many homes, business premises, schools and major components of the infrastructure have been badly damaged and will have to be taken down and rebuilt.  This will take years.  In the meantime the Nepalese will struggle to rebuild their communities and livelihoods.  But they are a resilient people and a little help can go a long way in this Himalayan country.  This is the home of the brave Gurkhas who have proudly served with the British Army for 200 years. 


This is Nepal’s Hour of Need……..

 A second earthquake has just hit compounding the problem
