NEPAL EARTHQUAKE: ONGOING APPEAL
A devastating earthquake struck Nepal on the morning of Saturday 25 April. Thousands died. Homes and livelihoods were destroyed.
Older people are particularly vulnerable. We estimate that 650,000 older women and men in Nepal have been affected.
Six months on, thanks to your support, we have provided shelter kits, cash and health care to some of the neediest older people in the worst hit areas.
But relief efforts are being hampered by a severe fuel crisis. More than 400,000 people are without adequate shelter and supplies as winter approaches.
The recovery process is going to take us a long time, so please continue to give your support.
