KATHMANDU, Nepal, April 25, 2015 – A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday, toppling buildings and creating avalanches in the Himalayas. The national disaster management agency has declared a state of emergency and says over 1000 people have died.
By Liz Satow, World Vision Country Director for Nepal.
Buildings and walls across Kathmandu have collapsed although it is hard to tell how serious and extensive the damage is. We know that dozens, maybe hundreds, of people have been killed and injured. Many people are too frightened to go into the buildings due to fear they will collapse with aftershocks. People are very worried and have for a long time feared the big quake.
Joint statement by Australian organisations and community groups
We, the undersigned, call for an immediate moratorium on the transfer of asylum seekers to Nauru and Manus Island until the safety and security of vulnerable asylum seekers can be guaranteed.
Far away from all forms of urbanization and complexities of city life, where the number of cars is limited compared to the number of goats and cows, is the rural village where Fatmeh, a 23-year-old volunteer with World Vision, lives.
“We have no chairs or sofas, I am sorry, apologizes Fatmeh while taking us inside, to the living room—a room with nothing but some pillows spread across the floor and a stove in the middle.
