Heifer International was saddened to hear of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal that occurred Saturday. Heifer has projects in this area of Nepal and is working to assess safety of families and damage to homes or loss of animals. Initial damage reports show significant impact to housing and actual losses for Heifer project farmers are unknown at this time due to damaged telephone networks. Based on information received so far, Heifer staff is reported to be safe. Heifer has worked in Nepal since 1977 and has assisted 171,000 families in 39 districts through the generosity of our supporters.
