Thoughts are with World Vision Australia staff member Matt Darvas today as he heads to one of the hardest hit areas by #nepalearthquake. Matt is in the heart of the epicentre near Gorkha and heading to the most remote villages in this region to offer supplies and support.
You can hear him speaking on BBC radio about his experience in Pokhara. My team and I were there less than a month ago. A peaceful lakeside town now over run with casualties from this disaster.
“The ground shook for 3 minutes” @mdarvas descibes the aftershocks in Pokharabbc.in/1EFiywH #Nepalquake
Just can’t believe the destruction in #Nepal. #durbarsquare #patanyesterday. I was there in 2006. See the bell…. Now look around … Support @worldvisionaus to get aid to #Nepalquake #nepalearthquakehttps://emergencies.worldvision.com.au/…
I’ve been watching news and updates all day and it’s starting to really affect me now the severity of the situation. The reality of the devastation that people are living through is inconceivable. I stood in these locations a few weeks ago… and now these places are rubble. The death told is 3200 and counting. To hear from friends today living through this turmoil is heartbreaking.
We can do something, we can donate and support non profit organisations on the ground to provide relief and supplies to those most in need:
