Join Canterbury Downtown and Chaplain Mary Cat Young tonight as we pay our respects for those who have lost their lives in the disastrous earthquake that hit central Nepal on Saturday, April 25, 2015.

The magnitude-7.9 earthquake, followed by continuous aftershocks, has devastated the peaceful country of Nepal and its surrounding areas of India, Bangladesh and Tibet. Upwards of 3,800 people have been found dead and even more have lost their homes. Thousands of years of history and culture, including many Unesco World Heritage Sites, have been completely destroyed.

This country is in dire need of aid, and any contribution made will go towards providing immediate medical care and long-term disaster relief.

All donations from this fundraiser and vigil will go to Global Giving, which focuses on the immediate relief and transition to long-term recovery. Click here to donate.

We hope you can join us in supporting the Nepali people in their time of need.
