Update on Nepal Earthquake: CRS and Caritas Are Distributing Aid

What is needed most are donations for the CRS and Caritas teams to continue their work on the ground.


CRS and Caritas Nepal teams had worked especially hard to reach today’s distribution in the village of Satdobato in the Gorkha district, about 50 miles west of Kathmandu, near the epicenter of the April 25 quake. Overnight rains made bad roads almost impassable and supplies had to be transferred from one vehicle to another to reach the distribution site. People walked for hours from their even more remote villages to get the supplies, badly needed as many lost their homes in the April 25 quake and these rains portend the coming monsoon season.  Reports said Sadobato is on a ridge so the shaking seemed especially intense as people realized this was not just another aftershock.
