Situation

Another major earthquake (7.4 magnitude) has struck Nepal. The massive earthquake and aftershocks that shook Nepal and neighboring countries on April 25th left thousands dead or injured. While it is too early to know the additional damage caused by this quake, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) will continue supporting the work of our partners in Nepal through ACT Alliance in recovery efforts from the April 25 quake and will respond as needed to the most recent one.

PDA Response

PDA's local partners through ACT Alliance have been working in Nepal for several years and are on the ground assisting many who have survived the quake by distributing immediate life-saving supplies such as water, food, shelter and medication.

PDA is committed to the long-term response. As long-term recovery plans are developed, PDA will accompany and further financially support our partners in the area to ensure a comprehensive recovery is sustained.
