nepalYou might be already aware of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in the morning of April 25.

According to the Nepalese government officials, more than 4,600 people have been confirmed dead, and the casualty is expected to go up. Thousands of injured are in desperate need of medical attention. Countless have lost their lives, homes and are on the streets in need of food, warm clothes and medicines.
