A Lancashire charity which runs a school in Nepal has appealed to help as it supports the earthquake recovery effort.

Deafway teaches sign language to people around the world and has run more than 60 projects in Nepal over the last 15 years.

The charity says its two project officers and the 85 children at its school in Sindhuli are safe.

But due to the threat of after-shocks, they are all sleeping out in in the open.

David Hynes, the Chief Executive of Deafway, came into the studio earlier to talk to Lucy about the critical situation:

Meanwhile leading UK aid agencies will use a television appeal to raise much-needed funds for victims of the Nepal earthquake.

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Nepal Earthquake Appeal is to launch on all major UK broadcasters tomorrow.

Money raised will support the efforts of DEC members to reach families affected by Saturday's quake.

The Disasters Emergency Committee has launched its appeal for Nepal.
