Deafway Nepal Earthquake Appeal
Over 7,500 people are known to have died in a powerful earthquake in Nepal, with many more feared trapped under rubble, officials say.
Thousands of Deaf children and adults will have been caught up in the recent earthquake. Schools for Deaf children have been damaged, parents and family members have been killed and seriously injured and homes have been destroyed.
It is vital that Deaf people get access to the practical and emotional support that they need in the coming weeks, months and years. This must be provided by Nepalese Deaf and hearing people on the ground who are fluent in Nepali Sign Language.
Deafway has worked in partnership with Deaf organisations in Nepal for the last 15 years. If you would like to find out more information about how you can help Deafway support Deaf communities in Nepal, go to their website at www.deafway.org.uk.
