ASLI urge you all to do something for Nepal and the neighbouring countries hit by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake

ASLI urge you all to do something for Nepal and the neighbouring countries hit by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake.

 

 As the death toll from Saturday’s earthquake reaches 3,726 and with more than 6,500 injured the world is rallying round with aid on the ground and requesting donations to better assist their relief efforts.

With thousands homeless or afraid to return to their homes, the Napalese capital of Kathmandu is filled with tent cities to aid these people in their hour of need.

But with water, food and electricity being scarce and disease due to sanitation having literally collapsed the magnitude of devastation is a real concern for all humanitarian efforts.

Nepal’s government Chief Secretary Leela Mani Paudel said “We urge foreign countries to give us special relief materials and medical teams,”

United Nations World Food Programme spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs told Agence France-Presse that “massive operation” will be under way.
