Location

Situation

On 25th April, a powerful earthquake struck Nepal. Estimates for the death toll currently stand at over 4.000 with over 6,000 people injured. These will continue to rise over the coming days. 8 million people are affected, many in need of humanitarian assistance. The earthquake has resulted in widespread damage and destruction, leaving families exposed to the elements, in fear, with few possessions left and no access to food or drinking water.

Solution

WV has a team of over 200 experienced staff in Nepal who have lived and worked in the affected communities for many years. WV is (1)aiming to reach at least 100,000 children and families with shelter and non food items such as cooking sets, water purifiers and blankets (2)focusing on child protection, through Child Friendly Spaces to provide a safe space for children to receive care, psychosocial support and protection. WV coordinates with other aid agencies to prevent duplication of effort.
