KATHMANDU (May 13, 2015) – Little more than two weeks after Nepal’s worst earthquake in more than 80 years, the country was traumatized by a second deadly earthquake on May 12.
CARE was in the process of scaling up its response in the remote Sindhupalchowk district at the time of the second earthquake.
A CARE team was in the village of Yarsa, Sindhupalchowk, doing an assessment and preparation. They reported that houses standing after the first earthquake have now fallen, causing more injuries. CARE helped facilitate the evacuation of a seriously injured woman in Yarsa.
