The Nepal response is one of the largest deployments of regional disaster response teams (RDRT) in Asia Pacific in the history of the programme which was established in 2001 to make the most of the capacity of neighbouring countries in disaster management. In Asia Pacific, only the Indian Ocean tsunami operation involved more RDRT members. - See more at: http://www.ifrc.org/en/news-and-media/news-stories/asia-pacific/nepal/regional-disaster-experts-help-after-nepal-earthquakes--69082/#sthash.l92suKnv.dpuf

The basic health care clinic in Singati, Dolhaka, near the epicenter of the second earthquake. The clinic, jointly runned by the German/French/Finnish Red Crosses is open from 8:00am to 4:00pm six days a week. From 4:00pm to 6:00pm the clinic grounds open to children where they can play with each other and otherwise just be a kid, something hard to do in this devastated community. The clinic also provides clean drinking water to residents and employs many locals  who have lost their livelihoods in the earthquake doing jobs such as registration, laundry, midwives and pharmacists.

The IFRC launched an 85 million Swiss franc (USD 93 million) emergency appeal to allow the Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) to deliver emergency relief to earthquake survivors and to support longer-term recovery.
