The Nepal Earthquake which struck on Saturday  25th April and had a Richter scale of 7.8 has already claimed over 5,000 lives and this number is rising. The country’s infrastructure has been seriously affected with many roads and buildings damaged and even those who still have their homes sleeping outside due to the fear of aftershocks. Vast numbers of people have been made homeless and many charities are working hard to provide shelter, food and care to all those affected.
