Description : ICRC website, "Nepal earthquake: Red Cross steps up emergency response", 7 May 2015

"The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is stepping up efforts to help the people of Nepal following the devastating earthquake which has left over 7,650 dead, 16,000 injured, and thousands more homeless and living in temporary shelters.
The ICRC is supporting the Nepal Red Cross Society in their response to the escalating needs of families and affected communities. This includes restoring contact between family members separated by the earthquake, and providing critical first aid materials and support. Thanks to the availability of emergency kits, NRCS volunteers were among the first who arrived to treat the wounded and to rescue those still trapped."
