April 28, 2015 - As of 3 p.m. today Nepal time, the death toll had surpassed 5,000 people with another 8,000 people injured. Our partners have prepared the first delivery of relief supplies and are heading into the heart of the disaster -- the Gorkha District -- with food, water and tents. In the village they are trying to reach, there are only four houses still standing and the smell is increasing from dead bodies that have not been recovered.
A larger truck will go tomorrow with supplies for 600 people. It has been raining on and off making the travel more difficult. The roads are starting to get very congested as more relief organizations are mobilize.
