As the confirmed death toll from Saturday’s earthquake in Nepal nears the four-thousand mark the International Rescue Mission has swung into operation.

As an organisation that has worked for many years with the Nepalese community in the UK and their families in Tang Ting and Pokhora, we have many friends and contacts who are desperately struggling on an hour to hour basis to survive and to help others survive.  As many of our group who have visited this wonderful country will tell you, the friendliness, generosity and love of the people of Nepal knows no bounds and so in their most desperate hours, days, weeks, months and years to follow we are duty bound to do everything we can to make their suffering as bearable as possible.

Messages from Tang Ting

A selection of messages received from the TangTing community and supporters since the earthquake.

Dear Tina,
Thank you very much for your concern.  By the grace of God we all are safe. We are having tremors quite frequently and are alert ourselves. Sleeping in the open space is a new experience. Many parts of Kathmandu, especially old monuments and buildings have been destructed.
Once again thank you very much. I will write more once the situation comes to normalcy.
With warm regards, Bhagirath.
Such sad news! Fortunately most of my friends in Pokhara and Tangting are
safe but very worried about any future tremors. I believe the home of Dilli
Jang, the deputy head teacher, has been slightly damaged. Otherwise they are
all ok but most of them are staying outdoors as they are frightened that
their homes may collapse.
The only person I haven't heard from is Krishna. He is somewhere in
Kathmandu and the last I heard from him was that he was working on a
building site. I have asked various friends to try to contact him.

Hi Tina
It is very sad news that up to now all total 1151 people have reported dead all over Nepal.
In Pokhara, I spoke to 3 people, as per them all our people are okay and all new built buildings are generally okay. In one news at about 1400 hours, I learned 2 people dead and 147 houses damaged in Pokhara. But no update are received at the moment.
I have not heard about Tangting. I rank twice in Tangting with Dilli Jang and other person but none of call were successful.
The main international airport in Kathmandu is also damaged so that no international aids are reaching to Nepal.
I spoke with 4 people in Kathmandu  and they have been staying outside the house in open areas for more then 6 hours and had experienced 13 to 15 times Earthquake and still not sure and reluctant to go inside.
No electricity in many places.
Regards,
Kesh Gurung
I am praying for the people of Nepal following the tragic earthquake, have
you heard anything of Tang Ting ?
Best wishes

Dear Tina et al,
Thank you all for your thoughts and concerned.  As far as I am aware, a few houses in Tang ting and Sikles have been cracked but luckily no human lives are lost and no major destruction have been done.  I pray that there would be no more earthquake and no more damages in Nepal!
Best regards.

Dear Lachhya and all our Nepalese  friends,
It was with a very heavy heart  that I learned of the earthquake , that hit your region yesterday.
Our hearts go out to you and all the people affected by it.
As it unfolds and the true magnitude becomes known, I hope rescue will be put into operation, and those who survived will receive, the  help they need.
Kind regards
Lindy
Dear tina and all
Namaste.
We are all safe and some houses walls are cracked in Tangting.

Dear Tina & all,
Thank you for your concerns. I also spoke with few people in Kathmandu & pokhara today, the loss of human lives & property are beyond imagination. In Kathmandu all people have been out of their houses out in the open spaces since this morning, they have not returned to their houses so most people don't know the damages done in their houses yet. As you may heard through various medias that the death toll is now exceeded 1000 & increasing every minute. Telephone lines & water supplier  are in complete chaos, in open spaces, there are acute shortage of food & water supply. People are starving. Damages to infrastructure, properties and landmarks are yet to be accounted for. The Kathmandu city is in complete shock and the international airport is closed. My children who flew out from Heathrow yesterday to Nepal via India got stranded in New Delhi airport. What a natural calamity Nepal faces. Further situation report to follow.
Thank you
Kind regards,
Lachhya

Hello Tina,
I hope you are well. I've been thinking of you watching the terrible news
from Nepal because of your charity there. Having had personal experience
with a 7.6 earthquake here in Guatemala in1976, my heart goes out to the
people of Nepal.
Drop me a line when you get a chance.
Warm regards,
Gloria E. Polanco

NEPAL EARTHQUAKE DISASTER
Posted by Sue Haylock, on Monday, 27 April 2015 21:12   

On the morning of Saturday 25th April a devasting earthquake hit Nepal, already a country which is the poorest in SE Asia.  Many thousands of people have been killed and injured. The infrastructure in Nepal is, at the best of times, extremely challenging. Now even this has gone. These people are desperately in need of water, food, medical attention and shelter.  In the longer term, there will need to be rebuilding works of houses, hospitals, roads and water supplies.

Please give generously.  We will ensure that EVERY penny you donate will go to those that need it.  

Please log onto the 'donate' section to donate via PayPal. If you would prefer to send a cheque, these need to be made payable to TTTA.
