PDF File Size: 1.85 MB | Download   
On 25 April 2015, a powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake (now termed the 'Gorkha
Earthquake') struck Nepal, with its epicentre in the Gorkha district and 85 km northwest of the capital Kathmandu. Fourteen out of 75 districts of the country were severely affected with an estimated affected population of 2.8 million (40 per cent are estimated to be children). The Ministry of Home Affairs reported 8,898 people were killed in Nepal – out of which 30 per cent or 2,661 were children – and another 22,309 injured. The earthquake has led to a massive destruction of houses, buildings and other public infrastructure such as hospitals, health centres and schools. Over the past 3 months, more than 300 aftershocks have occurred,causing severe fractures on mountain slopes and weakening rock masses in the most affected districts.

The most pressing needs include: shelter; food; access to safe drinking water and sanitation;health and nutritional services; education services; protection services, psycho social assistance and access to critical lifesaving messages and information services. Women and girls have become vulnerable to gender based violence due to temporary living arrangements. Children have been at increased risk of trafficking and exploitation, while the risk factors that are known to lead to child marriage (e.g. worsened poverty, security concerns for daughters, lack of educational opportunities, etc.) have increased.The most disadvantaged social groups have suffered the greatest damage and loss.
