ACC International Relief has launched a Humanitarian Relief Appeal to assist those affected by the earthquake in Nepal.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on Saturday causing widespread damage throughout Nepal and the surrounding region. The earthquake collapsed many houses, destroyed historical buildings and caused avalanches in the Himalayas. It is the worst earthquake to hit the country in over 80 years.
Over 2,500 people have been killed with this number expected to rise as recovery efforts continue. Thousands of others have been injured or left homeless and in need of urgent assistance.
ACC International Relief has been in communications with our field workers and partner organisations in Nepal to begin to launch a response to provide humanitarian assistance to many who are affected.
