DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – University of Dayton students gathered on campus Tuesday to pray for the survivors of the Nepal earthquake.
Students and faculty gathered in a prayer circle around the university insignia.
4,600 people were killed and helicopters are crisscrossing the epicenter to get injured people out and carry supplies in for relief.
A mudslide Tuesday buried a remote village. 250 people are feared dead.
“Most the people are homeless. Houses collapsed. And we lost all. These are the main focus in our country so we are very worried and we are just so sad today,” said Rudra Gnawali, UD student from Nepal.
“There are many more injured people in my village,” said Sangita Shrestha, who was pregnant and visibly downcast as she got off the helicopter. She was quickly surrounded by Nepalese soldiers and policemen and ushered into a waiting van to be taken to a hospital.
Some 8,000 people are reported injured.
