The Nepal chapter lead Gaurab Raj Pant has contacted me today,
and told me their situation.
As I’m sure you already know, a devastating 7.6 Richter scale
earthquake hit Nepal on the 25th April 2015, at 11: 58 AM, destroying
many historical landmarks, houses, roads and killing approx. 3725
people in 48 of 75 districts in Nepal while the death toll still
continues to rise.
Continued tremors are still being felt, meaning everyone is out on the
open area where ever they can find. Should tremors continue (which has
stopped for the last few hours) and if people are out like this, we
are likely to see huge challenge of basic supplies like water and also
major public health disaster. If tremors stop and people can go to
their homes and their life, Kathmandu, for the most part, should be
fine. Outside Kathmandu, the situation is severe. Thousands are now
homeless, have lost all supplies to the quakes, students have passed
away, and community members continue to cry out for help but to no
avail. From what we have seen in our attempt to provide relief, there
has been no effort from the government or other agencies in rural
Please help Nepalese.
And he and his family are safe so far, but living at tents in open space.
People need Medical, Tents, Cloths, water purifier continuously, though
Red Cross has fed these. As for chapter members, some could be
connected safe but still some are not still connected, Gaurab said.
I do not have enough information to help them but I strongly encourage
all of you chapter leads to find how to help Nepal's people and society
from various ways.
