The Gallery | Nepal earthquake in pictures and how you can help

Charity Care International has again launched its annual construction challenge.

The outdoor adventure sees teams of work colleagues from across the construction industry compete across a marathon distance on foot, bike and by canoe. Money raised from the challenge goes to fund life saving work to fight poverty and injustice in some of the world’s most vulnerable places.

This year the challenge takes place on 4 July in Carsington Water Country Park, close to the Peak District. Participants have been promised surprises along the route to test mental agility, communication skills and team work. Applications to join in the fun can be found on their website.

Care is currently working in Nepal after the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake. It hopes to provide 10,000 emergency kits containing essential shelter, water and sanitation equipment to the people who are most in need. It is also providing rapid information on how to safely demolish and salvage material from the ruins of the majority of buildings in the rural communities where the people are taking matters into their own hands.
