As many of you know, a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Gorkha district and surrounding areas in Nepal on April 25, 2015. Hundreds of aftershocks followed, causing havoc across the country. As relief efforts were ongoing, another major earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck on May 12, 2015, creating further destruction.

A part of the Divinity School’s Wednesday Lunch organized in support of those affected by earthquake in Nepal. Authentic Nepalese cuisine will be served.
