Nepal Earthquake 2015
A Salesian Response to the Earthquake`s Aftermath

In the face of the enormous human tragedy that resulted from the 7.8 earthquake that flattened much of Nepal on 25 April, the sons and daughters of Don Bosco rose valiantly to the occasion, keeping alive his legacy of compassionate response to the afflicted, a` la Turin`s cholera epidemic of 1854, translating their characteristic pastoral charity into speedy and wide-ranging humanitarian assistance.

The scale of devastation and death was of Himalayan proportions: 39 of Nepal`s 75 Districts were rocked by the earthquake, 16 of them severely; close to 8000 persons were killed, several thousand more injured, and billions of rupees worth of buildings, cattle, fields ready for harvest, and other property destroyed.
