DEC member British Red Cross asks when it comes to deciding what help is needed, who knows best?
“Have you ever slept out in the open, even for a night? Can you imagine what it’s like to sleep outside for three weeks?” After nearly a month in Nepal, Red Cross aid worker Jackie Frize knows that people there are still a long way from feeling safe. Jackie visited the country to find out …

Something as simple as a whistle can save your life; DEC member Concern Worldwide UK visits Nepal and finds out why.
I have been in Nepal just over one week and on Monday night I experienced my first aftershock. It was 3.7 in magnitude and its epicentre was in Kathmandu Valley itself. I’m not embarrassed to admit that the aftershock scared me. For those who have been living with these aftershocks for almost two months, their fear is still very real.

An earthquake can be devastating but life must go on and that means getting children back to school. DEC member CARE International has more.
In Mandre village, the local school was totally destroyed in the earthquake - but the villagers have got together to re-open it.

DEC member Tearfund has this brilliant article on just what it takes to reach those in need in remote places in Nepal.
Epic mountains, deep gorges and steep terraced hills make many communities struck by the recent earthquakes in Nepal incredibly hard to reach.

We can't thank you enough for all you've given to the Nepal Earthquake Appeal; with a second massive earthquake today it pains us to ask again but we have to...

If you've given and can spare a little more please donate via the link below.

If you've given all you can Thank You, you've made a real difference but there is one more thing you can do: tag your friends in this post. Ask them to give and to share this post. The more people we reach the more people we can help.

Thank you,

From the entire DEC team
