There is devastation in Nepal as it was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake yesterday.
More than 1,000 lives have been lost, many more are missing and trapped under the rubble.
Singapore is responding to assist, including the SAF. Our SAF’s C-130 will airlift aid, ferry a 15-man medical team from the SAF, personnel from the Changi Regional HADR Coordination Centre (RHCC), a 55-man search-and-rescue team from the Singapore Civil Defence Force and officers from the Singapore Police Force.
The Changi RHCC is monitoring the situation. If required, the SAF will do more.
Our condolences to the people of Nepal. Let us help and pray for them in this moment of despair and grief.
