Tandragee Free Presbyterian Church has donated £10,000 to assist with the crisis in Nepal.

The Free Presbyterian Church of Nepal has congregations scattered over the country and one of its ministers, Pastor Laxman, who was due to be ordained soon, died whenever his house collapsed in on him.

Several church buildings have also been destroyed.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland Free Presbyterian minister the Rev Wesley Graham and his wife Carol were visiting in Kathmandu whenever the earthquake struck.

For several nights after the quake they had to sleep in a tent along with members of the church, as people were advised not to return to the buildings until the threat of any further tremors had passed.

The Rev Samuel Murray of Tandragee Free Presbyterian Church said, “The money will be given to the Presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church of Nepal to use at their discretion in their effort to give humanitarian assistance to those in need.”
