Thousands of lives have been lost following the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake near Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, on Saturday, April 25. The earthquake impacted 30 out of 75 districts in Nepal, one of Asia's poorest countries, including densely populated cities, dispersed rural communities and mountainous areas, sparking avalanches in the Himalayas including Mount Everest.
According to government reports, the death toll has climbed to 6,200, and is expected to grow. As aftershocks continue to shake the region, the World Council of Credit Unions is communicating with the Nepal Federation of Savings & Credit Cooperative Unions (NEFSCUN) and Association of Asian Confederation Credit Unions (ACCU) to activate a fundraising campaign that will bring much needed relief to Nepalese credit unions, locally known as Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies (SACCOs).
At this time, NEFSCUN reports massive damage to financial institutions and member properties; severly impacting the ability to access services during this critical time. Much-needed cash contributions from the global credit union community will rehabilitate damaged SACCOs and benefit member lives.
