Earthquake relief efforts underway in Nepal

Search and rescue efforts are still underway in Nepal, which was hit by A 7.8 magnitude earthquake. There are concerns about food and water running out in many areas. Heavy rains have also increased the risk of the spread of infectious disease. Communication has also been difficult with cell phone networks down. Mark Sobralske, executive director of Himalaya Project NFP (a Chicago based NGO) and Bev Bronson, founder of House of Heart, join us to discuss the impact of the earthquake and current relief efforts underway in the international community.
