Nepal Earthquake Appeal
On Saturday 25 April a huge 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal and severely shook the lives of at least 5.3m people, leaving 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.
Over 3,000 people have already been confirmed dead and this figure is likely to rise significantly. People whose homes are still standing are sleeping in the streets or fields because they are terrified by regular aftershocks. DEC member agencies and their partners are working urgently to provide emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets. In the coming months they will also work with communities to support them to rebuild their lives. You can find out more about the DEC's work here - Nepal Earthquake Appeal
