Award-winning actress and CAFOD supporter Jo Joyner is calling for urgent action after visiting communities in Nepal who were severely affected by April’s earthquake.
Jo, whose work includes No Angels, EastEnders, Ordinary Lies and more recently The Interceptor, travelled to Nepal to see how people are coping three months since the devastating earthquake, and how crucial the work of our local partners has been in providing life-saving aid.
Madhu is a member of the Camillian Task Force, which is partnering with Caritas Nepal to provide medical care to communities devastated by the earthquake.
Nepal earthquake: Death toll rises above 4,500. Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for those displaced or afraid to return to their homes as strong aftershocks continued. Thousands spent every night outside. Officials have warned that the number of casualties could rise as rescue teams reach remote mountainous areas of western Nepal. This is a direct report from Father Pius Perumana.
The drive took more than 10 hours, and wove through fallen trees in a sub-tropical forest, crossing several river valleys. Here in Sindhuli district, Caritas teams are responding to areas so remote that communities living here have largely been unreached by humanitarian assistance.
