Nepal Earthquake

Nepal has been hit by a second major earthquake measuring 7.3. We are in contact with Caritas staff on the ground (who are safe), and they are working to respond in areas that have reported landslides. Caritas teams have already supported more than 38,000 people with temporary shelter kits and helped more than 2,000 families with food following the massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April.
