Nepal Earthquake Emergency Appeal

On Saturday, 25 April 2015 at 11:56 local time, a 7.6 magnitude earthquake as recorded by Nepal’s National Seismological Centre (NSC), struck Barpak in the historic district of Gorkha, about 76km northwest of Kathmandu. Nepal had not faced a natural shock of comparable magnitude for over 80 years.

The catastrophic earthquake was followed by more than 300 aftershocks greater than magnitude 4.0 (as of 7 June 2015). Four aftershocks were greater than magnitude 6.0, including one measuring 6.8 which struck 17 days after the first big one with the epicentre near Mount Everest. To date, there are over 8,790 casualties and 22,300 injuries. It is estimated that the lives of eight million people, almost one-third of the population of Nepal, have been impacted by these earthquakes. Thirty-one of the country’s 75 districts have been affected, out of which 14 were declared ‘crisis-hit’ for the purpose of prioritizing rescue and relief operations; another 17 neighbouring districts are partially affected.

Past Projects

CWS' aim is to provide health, education, protection and opportunities for women and children of Nepal. We have worked on a wide range of projects with different partners and we strive for our projects to remain relevant despite the rapidly evolving needs of people in Nepal.

We also worked on a couple of projects in Hong Kong helping disadvantaged youths and working with local school on a pollution project.
