2nd Earthquake Hits – Nepal (Save the Children)

Hi everyone,

As you are aware, I am racing Ironman Texas in 5 days. I am really looking forward to it. However, if you weren’t aware, The unthinkable has happened – a second major earthquake, this one estimated to be magnitude 7.1, struck Nepal early this morning. Devastated communities, still reeling from the April 25 quake, have suffered additional death and injuries, damage and destruction, making an already-desperate situation much worse.

I am raising fund for the Save the children foundation, your help is required. Please donate at least $20 – 100 to help these children in need. Many children and families are now so traumatized they are afraid to enter buildings and are sleeping outside. This is especially worrying given that the monsoon season is due to start this month, which will put the health of babies and children at further risk.

Save the Children is distributing desperately needed plastic sheets for shelter, as well as hygiene supplies and water purification tablets and household kits – all of which will become increasingly critical once the rains begin. Please help.

Thanks,

Hector L Torres
