A 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April. Authorities report over 700 people have been killed and many buildings have collapsed in the capital, Kathmandu.
As search and rescue efforts continue, hospitals in the capital continue to function but are stretched to the limit. Powerful aftershocks continue to be felt, so further damage is a risk, increasing the climate of fear amongst the local population.

The Freemasons’ Grand Charity immediately donated £50,000 to the Red Cross following the devastating earthquake that recently hit Nepal.

Over 5,000 people have been killed, and many thousands more are injured and without access to clean water, health facilities and shelter. The Freemasons have been publicly thanked by the Red Cross on their website and via social media.
