For the past few weeks a team of Caritas Nepal and partner has hiked mountainous terrain, witnessed landslides and lived in tents, in order to reach the most remote communities in Gorkha, the epicentre of the 25 April earthquake in Nepal.
Most of the Caritas relief efforts have been based in Kathmandu, because of the great difficulty in accessing areas outside of the city. Over the next few days, Caritas aims to reach these areas outside of the city by mobilising its strong Church network.
Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for people displaced by a major earthquake at the weekend as strong aftershocks continue. Caritas Nepal has been providing tarpaulins to offer protection from the rain and cold temperatures.
