The Salvation Army mobilized emergency response personnel and supplies after a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal.  The earthquake flattened homes and buildings, causing widespread damage and many deaths across the region. 

The Salvation Army is initiating a response to meet basic, urgent needs with shelter, food, water, and other necessary relief items. General Andre Cox asks supporters to please pray for the people of Nepal. With more than 75 offices throughout the country, 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 India and Nepal.

Monetary donations are the most critical need for survivors. The Salvation Army has set up a designated fund where 100 percent of gifts go to relief efforts in Nepal.
