(Kathmandu/Geneva/New York, 29 April 2015): The United Nations and partners appealed today for US$415 million urgently needed to provide vital relief to people affected by the devastating earthquake in Nepal. The joint action plan, outlined in the Flash Appeal document, aims to support Government efforts in addressing the most critical needs for shelter, water and sanitation, emergency health, food, and protection over the next three months. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April at 11:56 a.m. local time creating large-scale damage across the country, including in the densely-populated Kathmandu Valley. More than 5,000 people people lost their lives and at least 10,194 people have been injured in the tremor and the many aftershocks that followed. Some 70,000 houses were destroyed and another 530,000 homes damaged across 39 of Nepal’s 75 districts. Millions of people are in need of food assistance. In the immediate aftermath of the disaster, the Government, humanitarian and international partners launched a massive relief operation. Search and rescue and medical teams are tirelessly working to find survivors and providing urgent medical care. Safe drinking water is also being provided to the quake victims and food was dispatched for immediate distribution. “The timing of the intervention remains of the essence,” said the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Nepal, Jamie McGoldrick, adding “although I am heartened and encouraged by the progress of the response to date, efforts need to be maintained and stepped up to ensure vital assistance reaches all the affected, especially those in the remote areas”.
