4,300 people are already confirmed dead from last weekend’s earthquake in Nepal and there are fears this could rise to 10,000 as rescue workers start to reach remote areas.
Right now, Tearfund staff and partners are dealing with the most urgent needs, such as emergency shelters, food and safe water. The next few days are critical in the race to save lives.
Thank you so much for the ways in which you and your church have already supported Tearfund’s work with the very poorest around the world.
The Nepal quake is a significant disaster and we hugely appreciate the prayers and generous support of both yourself and your church as we join with others to tackle it.
- Please pray for speedy and effective rescue efforts to free those trapped in collapsed buildings.
- Pray that survivors in remote areas can be reached quickly.
- Children are at serious risk of being trafficked in the quake zone; pray for their protection.
