Nepal Earthquake Updates

Since yesterday morning our thoughts have been with Nepal which was struck by a magnitude 7.8 earthquake.

Some reports place the current death toll as high as 2,300. However, this figure is likely to rise as the situation in more remote and hard to access locations is still far from clear.

We are analysing reports from a wide variety of sources and considering how IDV may be able to help the people of Nepal at this difficult time, and during the long recovery ahead.

We are also in communications with several of IDV’s “All-Stars” in relation to forming an immediate response and assessment team.

Until this team is actually on-route we are not appealing for donations for Nepal. However, any pledges made to donate, or to fundraise, will help inform our plans as they continue to develop.

So, please get in touch if you are keen to support Nepal through IDV.
