The 7.9 magnitude Earthquake of April 25th and May 12th and many aftershocks that followed has led to loss of 8,781 lives, 22.303 injuries and over 500,00 homes destroyed. We at GMIN started our relief effort on April 29th and with the help of volunteers and donors have been able to provide help in the affect areas.
