A star-studded concert is taking place to help raise funds in response to the devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015. Proceeds and donations will be going to the ongoing relief efforts for the people of Nepal through the Canadian Red Cross.

Nepal says 6,204 people are known to have died in the 7.8-magnitude quake and 13,932 were injured.

The fate of thousands more in many remote areas remains unknown and the government has warned that the death toll could rise to more than 10,000. Days after, rescue teams are still struggling to pull out survivors trapped under rubble both inside and outside Kathmandu Valley.

The earthquake has toppled buildings and destroyed roads and infrastructure and the country is still at continued risk of landslides as well. Communities are in desperate need of drinking water, temporary shelters, sanitation and protection from disease, as well as psychological counseling.
