VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Humanitarian staff and volunteers from the Christian Broadcasting Network have treated more than 500 people in Nepal.

A large earthquake struck in Nepal last month, leading to the deaths of at least 7,500 people.

The network says medical care and thousands of pounds of food and emergency supplies have been distributed since Saturday.

The CBN team consists of several doctors and staff from CBN offices in India, Indonesia and its Virginia Beach headquarters. The network says it has conducted relief outreaches in 11 affected villages.
