NEPAL EARTHQUAKE: URGENT APPEAL
A powerful earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale struck Nepal on the morning of Saturday 25 April. An aftershock on Sunday caused further chaos.
Latest figures from Nepalese officials say over 2,000 people have died. Thousands more are injured. These numbers are expected to rise again.
Older people are particularly vulnerable in emergencies such as this.
Working with partners on the ground in Nepal, we are carrying out an urgent assessment of the situation and planning our response.
