Nepal disaster aid

nepal

On Saturday 25 April a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. It severely shook the lives of at least 5.3 million people and left many homeless. Nepal’s major cities, including the capital Kathmandu, have been badly damaged and rural areas near the epicentre have been completely cut off by avalanches.

Already over 8,000 people have been confirmed dead. Even those whose homes are still standing are sleeping in the streets because they are terrified by regular aftershocks.

DEC member agencies, their partners and numerous other charities are working urgently to provide emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets. Once immediate, life-saving needs are met, they will work with individuals, families and communities to support them to rebuild their lives.

You can support the desperately important life saving work being done by donating to one of the below charities that are currently running campaigns to try to counter the affects of the earthquake in Nepal.
