Anglican Overseas Aid responded quickly to support ACT Alliance partners in Nepal as they helped people affected by the devastating earthquake that struck on Saturday, April 25, which was followed soon after by another earthquake.
The combined impact left more than 8,600 people dead, and 8.1 million in need of humanitarian assistance in a mountainous country where access is difficult.
Money was sent from our Rapid Response Emergency Fund to our ACT Alliance partners, and since then generous donors have enabled us to send more. In total we have raised more than $100,000. The relief and recovery work is ongoing.
Our Nepal Earthquake Appeal is supporting the work of ACT Alliance partners that are responding in Nepal. This includes distributing shelter items (blankets and tarpaulins), ready to eat food, large household food packages, hygiene kits, and more. The needs are immense and ACT Alliance partners are working together to reach as many people as possible.
