A magnitude-7.8 earthquake and a series of powerful aftershocks have struck Nepal near its capital city, Kathmandu. Homes and buildings have been flattened, leaving an untold number of people homeless. Habitat’s disaster response teams are coordinating response operations with local government agencies and disaster relief partners, and will be assembling emergency shelter kits. Your contribution to Habitat’s Disaster Response Fund will help our efforts in assisting people affected by the earthquake and other disasters. Click HERE to make a contribution and learn more.
