Caritas provides aid to Nepal earthquake survivors

NepalLanding

Caritas is helping Nepal rebuild after the two devastating earthquakes which hit the country in April and May 2015. Its main long-term focus is to provide earthquake-proof homes and to ensure Nepalese are prepared if another disaster happens.

Working together with Caritas Nepal, Caritas organisations from around the world are investing €36.4 million over three years on rebuilding homes, fixing water supplies, repairing schools, providing work opportunities and raising awareness in communities about the need to protect vulnerable members.
