Update on Nepal Earthquake: CRS and Caritas Are Distributing Aid

Update on Nepal Earthquake
The latest earthquake, centered about 50 miles east of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu, was magnitude 7.3. The April 25 quake registered 7.8. It killed at least 8,000 people. Casualty reports from the latest temblor were just filtering in. All CRS staff are safe. CRS, which has committed $10 million to Nepal’s relief and recovery, has tried to reach people in outlying areas, a challenge as already bad roads were damaged in the earthquake.
