World Vision Hong Kong Staff Are On the Ground Assessing the Needs of the Affected


It has been five days since the devastating earthquake struck northwest of Kathmandu. The quake created massive destruction and more than 8 million, including vulnerable children, are expecting help.

World Vision Hong Kong Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Chiu and colleagues have arrived Nepal in the evening of 28 April. He says, “Millions are affected in Nepal and the situation is getting worse. Due to traffic congestion at the airport and on the road, aid transportation is facing challenges. Facing water and food shortages, frustrated survivors knocked on incoming cars that are filled with supplies. Militaries are maintaining orders in affected areas. Most of the houses have collapsed, even other houses have become too dangerous to stay in. Survivors are in need of food, potable water and hygiene kits.”

Relief supplies, such as tarpaulins and blankets, are being distributed to the survivors. World Vision deploys its full effort to provide adequate assistance to the affected. World Vision initially aims to respond to the urgent needs of 100,000 people (20,000 households).

World Vision Hong Kong appeals to the Hong Kong public to help the quake-stricken children and families.
