World Vision's relief work in Nepal in progress Over 10,000 people benefited


The devastating earthquake struck northwest of Kathmandu and created massive destruction. 39 out of 75 districts are impacted by the quake and over 3.5 million people are in need of food assistance.

World Vision’s relief work will include distribution of food and non-food items (including tarpaulins and blankets, etc.), improvement of water and sanitation as well as health and nutrition, provision of child protection and disaster preparedness activities, etc. All these work will help the affected communities rebuild their lives. World Vision also leads efforts to develop Child Friendly Spaces – places where children can release their distress through playing and learning.

Number of beneficiaries reached (as of 6 May 2015): 15,800 people (Target beneficiaries around 100,000) Items distributed: 2,000 tarpaulins, 440 CGI (corrugated galvanized iron) sheets, 600 blankets
Number of families received food assistance: 370
Number of Child Friendly Spaces set up: 10

World Vision is bringing more relief supplies to Nepal. Moreover, World Vision is also working closely with government and partners to ensure an effective emergency response, and thus responding to the needs of children and their communities.
