Under The Tent

When the earthquake struck on 25 April 2015, it razed to the ground, or damaged hundreds of thousands of homes mainly made of mud mortar and stones. Due to recurring aftershocks people took refuge in makeshift shelters next to their damaged homes, or in clusters in any available open space. Schools had been damaged, and were closed, parents were busy trying to salvage their belongings and trying to piece back their lives, and the children had nowhere safe to go. That is when UNICEF with its partners set up simple, bamboo and tarpaulin, child-friendly spaces.These were spaces where children could come and be children, have fun, play games, learn and forget their trauma. These spaces offered them a sense of normalcy. Following the earthquake UNICEF helped to establish 244 child friendly spaces, equipped with recreational kits.
Once the child-friendly space tent was set up and equipped with recreational materials, it became children’s favourite space in Tundikhel.Five days after the earthquake of 25 April, a young child engages in fun activities under the child-friendly space tent in Tundikhel.
