Himalayan Earthquake Disaster Response
More than 8,500 people are now known to have died in a massive earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday, April 25, 2015 and the death toll could rise to 10000 with many more still stuck under debris.
Thousands are spending their nights and days without shelter after the 7.9-magnitude quake, which also triggered deadly avalanches on Mount Everest. Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for those displaced or afraid to return to their homes as strong aftershocks continue.
Support is being extended from across the world by various governments and aid agencies to help save the lives of millions of people struck by the disaster in both Nepal and India. Relief and rescue operations are on as thousands are still feared buried under the rubbles. In addition to this, continued tremors for a couple of days have triggered greater panic and fear amongst the people. Bad weather, rains, power cuts and diseases like Diarrhea and measles are further creating chaos.
