LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Relief efforts continue in Nepal just days after a massive earthquake leveled parts of the country.
The death toll is currently more than 4,000, and is expected to keep going up.
Meanwhile, Nepalese people in central Arkansas are doing whatever they can to help from half-a-world away.
"They need everything they can get, like food, water, and medical supplies."
Nishav Mainali is president of the Arkansas Nepali Society in Little Rock. The first few hours after hearing about the earthquake that shook his home country were extremely stressful.
For Nepalese in Arkansas, seeing the news and pictures out of Nepal after the earthquake has been difficult, leading them to organize relief efforts.
