Situation

The earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday 25 April has had a catastrophic impact on the lives of millions of people. There is urgent need for food, water, shelter and emergency supplies. Hospitals, schools and homes have been destroyed, and water and sanitation services have been cut off in remote areas. Many have lost their homes, their possessions and their means of making a living.

Solution

CAFOD’s partners are on the ground, working around the clock to provide life-saving aid to injured and homeless families. Please donate today and help provide aid to thousands of people in desperate need.

  • "We came to the church because we know a lot of people here, so we can be together and coordinate and help each other out.”

    — Qurnain, 15 years old

  • “Lots of people have lost their homes and are out on the street, so we are distributing tarpaulin, tents and food. People are in dire need.”

    — Father Pius Perumana SJ, Director of Caritas Nepal in Kathmandu

  • “While the streets are rife with activity, the city is paralysed with destroyed buildings, blocked roads, intermittent power & rolling aftershocks.”

    — Eleanor Trinchera, Caritas Australia Programmes Coordinator for Nepal
