Nepal Earthquake Appeal


5th May 2015, missjewelz.com

I heard over the radio on my way to work that the Search and Rescue for the recent devastating earthquake in Nepal will come to a halt after more than 7000 bodies of the victims have been recovered from the rubble . However, Nepal still needs the world community support in rebuilding back their lives and hope.

Some info and stats on the crisis (Source : Wikipedia)

Date of tragedy : 25th April 2015 (Saturday)

Time : 11:56:26 (NST)

Scale of magnitude : 7.8 Richter

Depth : 15km

Type : Thrust (More on ‘Thrust)

Epicenter : Barpak, Ghorka district  28.147°N 84.708°E[1

Casualties : 7472 dead (official number as at 5 May 2015), and 15,000 + injured (official number as at 5 May 2015)

For this, lets continue to render  our support by any mean which we can. I am highlighting 3 channels which you can extend some assistance ; the Nepal Embassy (Prime Minister Disaster Relief Fund Nepal) , Malaysia Red Crescent Society and Maybank Nepal Relief Fund. I’ve put in the details in the little poster below, and would truly appreciate it if you can share it with your friends, or on your blogs if you can.

My prayer goes to all in Nepal, and all the Nepalese around the world.
