A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck central Nepal on April 25.
2300+ are feared dead, with 5800+ injured and many trapped. Many buildings are destroyed or unable to be occupied and many face the prospect of living outdoors or in camps for weeks to come.
How will this campaign help?
Funds are needed to support immediate disaster relief efforts and to secure medical supplies, shelter, food and water for the hundreds of thousands affected.
Funds will support the Red Cross's earthquake relief efforts in Nepal. Read about Red Cross volunteers in action following 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal.
