Reaching Out to Nepal

On April 25, 2015, Nepal experienced its worst earthquake in 80 years. It struck at the heart of the nation, just 47 miles (77 kms) northwest of its capital, Kathmandu. The 7.8 magnitude quake sent 20 shockwaves to China, India and Bangladesh. On May 12, another 7.3 earthquake caused even more devastation. 

Over 8 million Nepalese – more than a quarter of the nation’s population – lost their homes, places of business, belongings and food/water sources. More than 5,000 have died.

Join the international community as UCR sends relief to Nepal. Explore the many resources on this site, and make a difference by getting involved. We also hope that the crisis abroad inspires the UCR community to serve others here at home.
