Your contribution will help provide medical attention, surgery materials and hygiene kits to the areas hardest hit by the disaster.  Doctors of the World has already sent 20 tonnes of medical supplies that can be used to help 30,000 Nepalis. We have a 40-strong team on the ground and another team, including doctors and surgeons, on their way.

But more is desperately needed to assist the thousands of survivors of Nepal’s worst earthquake in a century.

More than 60 aftershocks have occurred and geological experts expect strong aftershocks to continue, perhaps for several months. The earthquake’s epicenter was located 70 km from the capital Kathmandu, a densely populated city home to 2.5 million people.
