International Development Secretary Justine Greening has announced £5 million in UK funding to contribute towards the Nepal earthquake relief effort, it has been announced.
Earlier today, Justine Greening chaired a Cobra emergency meeting to discuss the UK's response to the Nepal earthquake.
The £5m package of UK support in response to the Nepal earthquake includes:
- £3m released under the Rapid Response Facility (RRF) so partners can address immediate needs on the ground; and
- £2m for the British Red Cross.
Four men trapped under as much as 10 foot of rubble after the Nepal earthquake were rescued when NASA technology sensed their heartbeats.
One medical worker told ITV News it was like 'entering your worst nightmare' as they tried to help look after the injured.
