Scores dead from earthquake in western Nepal.

Local news is reporting as many as 128 people have so far died with many more injured from the 6.4 magnitude quake.

Tearfund Australia is currently liaising with local partners to assess the situation with further updates to be provided. Tearfund’s local partner INF has sent a team from their local office to provide immediate relief and do a needs assessment to prepare for a further response.

Please pray for Nepal

In the meantime we invite Australians to join with us prayer for the families and communities impacted and to pray for the first responders and assessment teams on the ground. This is remote and isolated area of the country and with communications impacted getting accurate and timely information is difficult.
