A powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck South Asia on Monday, October 26. In Afghanistan and Pakistan alone, the quake killed nearly 400 people and destroyed over 7,000 homes. Authorities warn that the death toll could continue to rise as they access remote villages.

Thousands of people left homeless by the earthquake are facing bitter winter weather. The need for emergency shelter and medical help is urgent.
