His Holiness Patriarch Kirill’s condolence over devastating earthquake in Nepal

His Excellency Dr. Ram Baran YADAV


Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal

Your Excellency, dear Mr. President,

I have been deeply grieved to learn about the terrible natural disaster which occurred not far from Nepal’s capital. As a result of the devastating earthquake, many people have died and been injured. The natural disaster has caused considerable material damage.

The Russian Orthodox Church sympathizes with the people of Nepal and grieves with those who have lost their relatives and friends. I ask you to convey to them the words of support and wishes of spiritual strength and fortitude.

With deep condolences,



Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
