Nepal needs your help today!

mumnepalbeahero.jpgA major earthquake has struck eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest, two weeks after more than 8,000 people died in a devastating quake.

The latest earthquake hit near the town of Namche Bazaar and sent thousands of panicked residents on to the streets of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu.

It had a magnitude of 7.3, compared with the 7.8 of the 25 April quake.

So far, at least 48 people have been killed and more than 1,000 injured, officials say. At least 17 have also died in India.

Relief efforts have begun, however the need in Nepal is great. Be A HERO partner Global Development Group currently has four projects delivering emergency relief:

J537R Heartland Emergency Relief Project
is located in Kathmandu, the epicentre of the earthquake. This project is positioned in prime position to deliver effective emergency relief to those worst affected by temphousenepalbeahero.jpgthe earthquake.
