A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck Nepal on this Tuesday near Mount Everest. At least 50 people have been killed and more than thousand injured. A number of buildings have collapsed. India reported 17 dead people, mainly in Bihar State. China reported one dead woman.
This new tragedy happened just two weeks after 8000 have died in a magnitude 7.8 quake. Once again, the population of Nepal found themselves rushing outside, looking for open space, scared and confused.
This latest quake did not affect EWM children’s home. The children and the staff are safe. As we said in our previous post, the children are staying outside and sleeping under a tent because of the many frequent aftershocks.
We value your continue prayers for EWM team. Not only they rescue and help the victims but they also share God’s love and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need your support more than ever in this situation.
More info and photos to follow in the next few days.
