Nepal Earthquake 100 Days Into the Humanitarian Response
PDF File Size: 3.34 MB | Download   
The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015 and the numerous aftershocks that followed including one measuring 7.3 caused widespread destruction and loss of life. Nearly 9,000 people were killed and more than 22,000 others were injured. More than 600,000 houses were destroyed and another 290,000 were damaged, leaving hundreds of thousands of families without a roof over their heads. Pre-existing vulnerabilities were further exacerbated. Damage to infrastructure interrupted the delivery of basic social services including healthcare.
UNFPA response to Nepal’s earthquake targeted women and girls in the 14 most affected districts. It aimed to effectively provide the MISP for RH, a coordinated set of Nepal Earthquake Response priority activities designed to prevent and manage the consequences of sexual violence. In articulating its strategy, UNFPA took as its guiding principle the concept of “Dignity First”. It upheld the need to empower women and girls, supporting them to maintain their self-respect and the ability to provide for their families by supporting their needs for safety, security, hygiene, health and information. The campaign aimed to remind actors in the humanitarian community that women and girls deserved special attention, that their dignity needed to be preserved and respected.
