Magnitude 7.9 Earthquake near Katmandu, Nepal
By now you've probably heard that a magnitude 7.9 earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday, April 24, 2015. At this time, there are over 1,000 people reported dead with many more injured and most of Nepal not yet reconnected with the outside world, meaning the toll will likely go higher.
For those of us who love Nepal and its people, we know that they dont have the resources to deal with and recover appropriately from this tragedy. We havent yet communicated with our sister organization in Kathmandu, but are discussing our options for assisting.
If you wish to donate to an organization with a history of humanitarian work in Nepal, we commit that any gifts will directly benefit the people of that great country.
