One month after two major earthquakes devastated Nepal,one in six children in the country are still in urgent need of humanitarian assistance - with increasing risk of chronic physical and emotional conditions.Food, water and shelter are still the top priorities for aid in the affected districts. In the past month, UNICEF has worked with partners to distribute tents, tarpaulins, hygiene kits,therapeutic foods, medical kits information /education/communication materials, plastic buckets, school-in-a-box and early childhood development kits. To date, the total value of UNICEF supplies distributed amounts to $3.8 million, with a $17.6 million plan for more supplies while $13 million worth of supplies have been ordered.The need for drinking water and repair of water supply sources has also been very evident in rural villages. To address this, UNICEF has made clean water available to over 305,100 people and more than 45,200 now have access to adequate sanitation and hand washing facilities. To fight against diseases, UNICEF is also carrying out a major measles and rubella immunization campaign for more than 500,000 children.In addition to children’s immediate physical needs, the psychological impact of experiencing two earthquakes in less than three weeks cannot be underestimated. There has been an increasing need for safe spaces for children to be together, interact and play, feel supported and receive psychosocial support. To address this, UNICEF has been working with partners to set up 65 Child Friendly Spaces for more than 10,000 children in the displaced communities. To help children regain a sense of normalcy, temporary learning centers for more than 950,000 children are being established.Although relief efforts over the past month have helped to save the lives of many children in Nepal, the enormity of the task ahead to heal both emotional and physical scars is tremendous.On 25 April 2015, twelve days after the Nepali new year,a powerful 7.8 magnitude earth-quake struck Nepal with its epicenter in Lamjung, 50 miles (80 km) west of the capital Kathmandu. Similarly, devastatingly,a second earth-quake with a magnitude of 7.3 struck on 12 May 2015. This earthquake, with its epicenter in Dolakha District (east of Kathmandu) exacerbated the destruction and worsened living conditions for people,particularly in the most severely affected districts such as Sindhupalchowk.The second earthquake also led to further destruction of educational facilities and health infrastructure.
