As all of you are aware, shortly before noon on Saturday, a massive 7.8 earthquake struck central Nepal near the densely populated city of Kathmandu. Within moments, countless homes, buildings and temples collapsed, killing nearly 4000 people and injuring many more. As the death toll mounts and aftershocks continue, cries for help have gone out from the government of Nepal. People are sleeping in the open, fearful of returning to their homes.
