A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April 2015 (11:56am local time), with the epicenter at Barpak Village Development Committee (VDC) in Gorkha district – some 81 km northwest of the capital city, Kathmandu. There were continued aftershocks throughout Nepal, with one shock reaching a magnitude of 6.7 on 26 April at 12:54am local time. With the severe devastation of the earthquake, the Government of Nepal declared an emergency in the worst affected districts and requested for international humanitarian support on 26 April 2015. A preliminary estimate indicates that more than 80% of houses in the 14 most affected districts1 are severely damaged, creating huge mounds of rubble and debris impeding life-saving operations and access to affected areas. More than 25 hospitals and more than 900 smaller facilities, predominantly village health posts which supply basic medicines and other routine services in remote communities outside the Kathmandu valley, were completely or partly damaged in the earthquake. A strong aftershock measuring 7.3 magnitude struck on 12 May at 12:50 local time. The epicenter was southeast of Kodari (Sindhupalchok District), 76 km northeast of Kathmandu an area already affected by the 25 April quake. The initial quake was followed by several aftershocks including a 5.6 magnitude.
