Nepal Relief Appeal

 

 

Following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Nepal on April 25, the unthinkable happened.  A second quake, registering 7.3 hit Nepal on May 12.   Thousands have been killed with many more injured, and the death toll continues to rise.  Many are homeless and there are challenges getting supplies to those cut off by difficult terrain.  Our hearts go out to the people in Nepal.

The UN says that the earthquake has affected 8 million people across 39 districts.  600,000 homes have been lost or damaged with at least two million people needing tents, water, food and medical attention.

Apart from Reach Beyond Australia’s shortwave radio ministry, our Asia Pacific office has helped Nepali partners establish eight community-based Christian radio stations, a healthcare clinic and a birthing centre.  We are in touch with most of our FM radio partners.  At last report, we knew that five were still on the air.  Praise God!
