Islamic Relief to provide lifesaving aid in earthquake-hit Nepal

UK-based Charity, Islamic Relief, has made an appeal to raise help for Nepalese families struggling to survive winter cold after earthquakes killed at least 157 people and destroyed thousands of homes.

The latest reports from the Nepalese government are that over 35,300 houses have been fully or partially destroyed in the hardest-hit districts.

A staggering 1.3 million people have been affected, according to United Nations estimates, which indicate that around 250,000 people may need humanitarian aid.

A statement by the charity organization says that the wintry weather is also threatening the survival of families, expressing concern that some families are forced to spend their nights outdoors in the cold.
