CWS is working with partners ACT Alliance and Lutheran World Federation in Nepal
Over 3,600 people are known to have died in a massive earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday. More than 6,500 people have been injured. The 7.9 magnitude earthquake was the country’s worst natural disaster in more than 80 years.
Members of ACT Alliance which have been working in Nepal for several years are on the ground and already working to assist many who have survived the quake, by distributing immediate life-saving supplies such as water, food, shelter and medication.
“People are suffering and need urgent assistance,” said Reshma Adatia, ACT Alliance’s Global Humanitarian Coordinator.”Their priority needs are water, shelter and hygiene.”
Everything is still in chaos in Kathmandu, and access to information about the situation in more remote areas is limited, due to the destruction of communications channels.
CWS works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and work for peace and justice in the world.
