Donations for Nepal are being accepted
The Salvation Army is mobilizing emergency response personnel and supplies after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal flattened homes and buildings, causing widespread damage across the region and killing more than 2,000 people.
With more than 75 offices throughout the area, volunteers and staff are well-prepared to service the immediate and long-term needs of those impacted by natural disasters. Since 1882, the Salvation Army has served the people of its India Eastern territory.
“Donations from the generous public will help provide basic necessities that survivors desperately need right now,” said Lt. Col. Ron Busroe, the Salvation Army’s national community relations and development secretary. “But the effects of this tragedy will be felt for months – even years. We know that emotional and spiritual counseling is equally important for survivors to deal with the gravity of the situation.”
Monetary donations are the most critical need for survivors. The Salvation Army has set up a designated fund in which 100 percent of gifts will go to relief efforts in Nepal. To donate, visit salar.my/Nepal or call 800-SAL-ARMY.
