Nepal Earthquake Response
30 April 2015 - On Saturday, April 25, 2015, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal – the largest quake in 81 years in the region. As the rubble is slowly cleared the death toll rises. The quake has caused food, water and shelter shortages. Aftershocks continue to rattle the area, causing people to sleep in the streets in fear of collapsing buildings. Families are desperate to find missing loved ones. Hospitals are overwhelmed with injured. Supplies of medicines are also running low. The airport is inundated with people trying to leave, and aid groups arriving to offer assistance.
GlobalMedic is responding. Teams are currently on the ground in Kathmandu with water purification units. An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Unit will begin mapping the devastation to help target areas with the greatest need. Additionally, GlobalMedic is deploying field hospitals and tents that will support the treatment of patients by replacing crucial medical infrastructure that has been damaged by the earthquake.
