Nepal: Karnali Earthquake

On 3 November 2023, an earthquake measuring 6.4M on the Richter Scale struck Nepal's Jajarkot district, resulting in 157 reported deaths, hundreds or people injured and large-scale destruction of property in 11 districts. This is the largest earthquake to impact Nepal since the 7.3M earthquake in 2015 and the latest one to hit western Nepal since November 2022. The IFRC and its membership seek CHF 7 million (CHF 5 million of which is expected to be raised by the IFRC Secretariat) to support the Nepal Red Cross Society to reach 50,000 people with life-saving services.
