PDF File Size: 524 KB | Download   
A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April 2015. This was followed by several powerful aftershocks, including a major one (7.3 magnitude) on 12 May, 2015. The earthquake has had severe humanitarian implications in terms of shelter, food security, health and sanitation, and access to basic services. Over 750,000 buildings have been completely or partially destroyed, with critical infrastructure such as bridges, hospitals and schools heavily damaged. The Nepal humanitarian assistance included urban areas strongly hit by the Earthquake. While the capital Kathmandu which counts over 1 million people was greatly affected, other smaller urban centers in surrounding Districts faced even greater damage. These include Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, Sindhupalchok, and others.
