Two devastating earthquakes hit Nepal in April and May 2015. The death toll climbed to over 8,790 and more than 22,300 people were injured. Out of 75 districts, 31 are affected, 14 of which are heavily impacted. The earthquakes destroyed 498,852 houses and 2,656 government buildings. Another 256,697 private houses and 3,622 government buildings were partially damaged.
In the 14 most affected districts, almost 26 percent of the damaged houses belong to female-headed households, 41 percent to dalits and indigenous communities and 23 percent to senior citizens. Large portions of the affected population are still living in very basic temporary shelters with limited access to safe water supply and sanitation facilities. Damaged offices interrupt many frontline government services and the livelihoods of millions of people have been affected.
