Nepal Earthquake

The Situation: Sections of the city’s historic center lay in rubble. News reports indicate that more than 1,000 people have died and thousands are injured in the valley surrounding Kathmandu. The death toll is expected to rise as people are believed to be trapped under rubble. Deaths have been reported in neighboring India, Tibet and Bangladesh. The tremor also set off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest. - Lutheran World Relief is already at work providing relief. Your donation can help their effort.
