Nepal Tragedy

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this devastating earthquake in Nepal that reached so far as to India and Tibet which killed and injured so many and hurt so many families.
Unfortunately, the tragedy does not end here. As we all know, one thing leads to another and becomes a continuous chain of reactions and further events. Here is some aftermath anticipated by the UN.
The UN children's agency says nearly one million children in Nepal urgently need humanitarian assistance as they were particularly vulnerable.
The country is running out of water and food, and there are frequent power cuts, the UN says.
Heavy rain earlier on Saturday further worsened conditions with UN officials expressing concern that thunderstorms that could harm people staying outdoors and lead to a shortage of vaccines against disease including diarrhea and measles.
 There are 14 international medical teams on the way to Nepal, the UN says, and up to 15 international search-and-rescue teams have been sent.

Now, this is the time to show our compassion that we always talk about. This is the time to reach out and try to help; whatever and however we can.
May God help them to cope with this devastating situation, but at the same time, we should try to do our part as fellow human beings.

The good you do today will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

‘Rajan Sachdeva’
