Post-Earthquake Relief (2015)
On April 25, 2015, a 7.9-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal — the largest in over 80 years — and killed nearly 9,000 people, injured over 22,000 and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. In the months that followed, there were several aftershocks, including a 7.3-magnitude that hit on May 12.
Though the earthquakes’ epicenters were located in the Sindulpolchouk and Gorkha districts, 35 of the 75 districts in Nepal were impacted — decimating around 700,000 homes.
