Earthquake Relief for Nepal

A 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal in the late morning of April 25, 2015, toppling buildings and homes, causing widespread panic, and claiming thousands of lives.

CRS is the official humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the U.S. and is already responding to urgent needs for shelter, water and food in Nepal. For more information, go to
