Nepal Earthquake

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal Saturday, April 25, 2015, less than 50 miles from the capital of Kathmandu at 11:41 a.m. local time. The quake was strong enough to shake even the Himalayan Mountains. It was considered the worst earthquake in Nepal in more than 80 years. Our partner organizations had teams on the ground in Nepal within days of the earthquake delivering supplies and working to address health care needs. 

Your AAFP Foundation continues to support disasters such as this with financial support to help ensure medicine, medical supplies, hygiene kits, and other critical supplies make it to the area and meet the needs of families affected by these types of devastating events.
