On 25 April 2015, a powerful earthquake with a magnitude 7.8 on the Richter scale struck Nepal with its epicentre 80 km east/northeast of the capital Kathmandu in Gorkha District. On 12 May, Nepal was hit again by a magnitude 7.3 aftershock with its epicentre in Dolakha District, 85 kilometres west/northwest of Kathmandu. In the month after the April earthquake, there were over 150 aftershocks, including 75 above magnitude 4.5. Altogether 57 out of 75 districts of the country were affected by these earthquakes, and 14 of them were severely affected1 with an estimated affected population of 2.8 million2. Forty per cent of them are children under 18 years of age. This has led to a massive destruction of houses, buildings and other public infrastructures such as hospitals, health centres and schools. As of 3 June, 8,699 people have been killed and another 22,217 injured. The devastation has left people in the affected areas with no shelter, little food, and limited access to water and sanitation, health, nutrition, education and protection-related services.
The delivery of relief assistance has been hampered by the destruction of roads and bridges. The situation is also projected to worsen once the monsoon season starts by mid- June, as an estimated 90 per cent of the affected population is living in areas which are at high risk of landslides and floods. Additionally, it is estimated that 45,000 families will be affected by floods in the Far Western and Mid-Western regions and along the Terai belt in the South.
