Within hours of the quake, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) carried out an aerial assessment mission, with the Emergency Coordinator, Richard Ragan, flying by helicopter to the affected area and speaking to officials on the ground.


The WFP team flew to the base of Mt. Everest’s Khumbu Glacier and over Namche
Bazaar. The assessment team also surveyed Chautara in Sindhupalchok District, where WFP’s forward operating hub is located, and Charikot in Dolakha District – these were places heavily affected by the first earthquake. A great deal of damage was visible from the helicopter, but it is not yet clear if this is a result of the first earthquake on April 25 or of Tuesday’s quake.
