Singapore Red Cross are appealing to the Singapore public to help the affected people as they mourn their loss and begin to rebuild their lives.
Latest figures reveal that at least 5,000* people are now known to have died in the devastating earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday, with countless more people injured and in desperate need of help. According to Red Cross teams on the ground, strong aftershocks continue to be felt adding to the risk of further damage to buildings and leaving many people living in fear unable to return to their homes. Damage to roads and the airport means that getting relief and aid to these communities is also going to pose a great logistical challenge.
The Singapore Red Cross will channel the funds collected towards acute emergency relief and recovery assistance for the affected communities and the people who have lost homes and livelihoods.Please give generously today to enable us to help those who need it most.
