CHICAGO -- At least 3,800 people have died since a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal.
Strong aftershocks have been hitting the decimated region ever since.
7,000 people are injured, but they're struggling to get the medical care they need.
Chicagoans, originally from Nepal, are now seeing the devastation of the area they used to know.
Some community organizations already started fundraising.
The Nepali American Center in Mount Prospect is collecting money online at "NepaliAmericanCenter.org."
The King Sweets Bakery, on the city's north side, features desserts from Nepal, India and Pakistan.
The owner says he was stunned to see what happened to the country he and his customers know so well.
