Nepal Earthquake Appeal 2015

In 2015, the British Red Cross launched an emergency appeal to help people affected by devastating earthquakes in Nepal.  

The first earthquake struck on 25 April, killing thousands. Millions of survivors were left homeless, or unable to earn a living or go to school.

Red Cross volunteers started helping the moment disaster struck. As well as bringing aid such as food and blankets, the Red Cross  will help people rebuild their lives.
