Primates World Relief and Development Fund: is responding to the Nepal earthquake through the ACT Alliance and its members.
A second earthquake measuring 7.4 struck north-east of Kathmandu on May12 and has caused an increase in landslides. At least 64 people were killed and 2,000 people injured. This figure is likely to rise as rescue services gain access to those affected.
ACT member Lutheran World Federation (LWF) Nepal is sending an assessment team to the affected districts of Dolakha, Rasuwa and Sidhupalchowk, to identify the level of damage and emergency needs. More than 8,000 people died in the initial quake.
Thanks to the generosity of concerned Anglicans and others, PWRDF has collected $167,937 for Nepal Earthquake Relief to date. These gifts will be matched by the Canadian government, doubling their impact.
There is still time: All donations to PWRDF between April 25 and May 25, 2015 for the Nepal earthquake relief efforts will be matched, dollar for dollar, by the Government of Canada into their Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund, which will be used to provide humanitarian relief.
The Catholic Diocese: invites all Greater Sudburians to a free Indigenous celebration, Saturday, May 23, 5:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Fielding Park in Walden.
