‹ Return to Nepal Earthquake: £50,000 to Red Cross
A 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April. Authorities report over 700 people have been killed and many buildings have collapsed in the capital, Kathmandu.
As search and rescue efforts continue, hospitals in the capital continue to function but are stretched to the limit. Powerful aftershocks continue to be felt, so further damage is a risk, increasing the climate of fear amongst the local population.
