Following another powerful earthquake in Nepal, the pressure is on to get supplies to areas hit by this second earthquake.
Christian Aid is one of the organisations with local partners continuing to help communities affected by the first earthquake which killed more than 8,000 people and forced some 3 million from their homes. They have already reached more than 50,000 people with vital emergency supplies including medical care and first aid, blankets, tarpaulins, food, water purification equipment and purification tablets. Christian Aid has an appeal to help its partners who are responding – for up-to-date details and to donate, see the Christian Aid website.
The United Mission to Nepal (UMN), supported by the Church of Scotland and the Methodist Church in Britain among others, is also working with local partners to provide emergency supplies and shelter. You can find out more about UMN’s efforts on its website.
Christian Aid also has prayers and prayer points for those who would like to pray for all those affected by the Nepal earthquake.
