Thousands of people headed to Trafalgar Square last night (Tuesday) to show support for the victims of the Nepal earthquake.
Organised by Nepalese organisations from University College London, LSE and Imperial, the event was both a fundraiser and a tribute to the 5,000 people who are believed to have died in last weekend’s 7.8-magnitude earthquake. A further 10,000 people were injured in the disaster, according to the UN, with eight million affected in total.
Those paying tribute bought flags and candles, and wrote ‘Pray For Nepal’ on the ground, as they paid their respects to those who died.
