iSportconnect Supports British Red Cross With Their Nepal Earthquake Appeal Urging Members to Donate
May 12, 2015
Following a devastating earthquake in Nepal, the British Red Cross has launched an appeal to provide urgent emergency support.
The initial earthquake, measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, struck 50 miles Northwest of Kathmandu at 6am on 25 April, killing more than 8,000 people.
The country was today hit by another major earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.3, which has so far seen 37 killed and 1,000 injured.
iSportconnect would like to urge all of its members to support this cause and donate.
Alexander Matheou, British Red Cross Director of Programmes, said: “The impact of this powerful earthquake has been devastating.
“People are now sleeping out in the open, too scared to return home while the aftershocks go on. Some have no home to return to.
“Search and rescue efforts are continuing, but some roads, especially in areas near the epicentre, have been damaged or blocked by landslides or rubble. We are extremely worried about these communities.”
The British Red Cross appeal will bring in urgently-needed support – including safe drinking water, emergency shelter and medical equipment. Every donation will make a big difference.
iSportconnect Founder and CEO Sree Varma said: “We are happy to be supporting the Nepal Earthquake Appeal which is such a worthy cause. It is our duty to help those in need at this hugely difficult time.”
