After a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, Nepal’s worst in 80 years, and a severe aftershock measuring 6.6 one day later, relief efforts are intensifying. Doctors in the area are overwhelmed, search and rescue efforts are swamped and the people of Nepal need our help more than ever before.
There are no words that can put into context the devastation as the people of Nepal attempt to recover from a tragedy that most of us cannot even begin to comprehend. All we can do at this point is try to provide survivors with aid, and hope that our best efforts can provide some comfort for our friends in the region.
As the death toll rises and with the number of injured exceeding 5000, several countries have initiated humanitarian efforts, and the Children’s Medical Aid Foundation is dedicated to provide assistance in any way possible, foremost being essential medical aid to those injured who need it most.
