NEPAL EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
It has been a year since the devastating earthquake, and thousands of children still need permanent shelter and safe classrooms to enable them to return to school.
Please give now to support children in the next critical phase of their recovery from this disaster.
Nepal Earthquake Appeal
Communities in Nepal were left in shock after a huge magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck on the morning of Saturday 25 April 2015, followed by a second quake on 12 May. Thousands of people were killed and many more injured.
With the support of people like you, we have provided blankets, shelter kits, solar lamps and clean water tabs to families, and set up safe places for children to play and learn. But there is still much to do.
It is estimated that approximately 166,000 children still don’t have permanent classrooms. With a focus on health, livelihoods and education, and continuing to meet basic needs, we continue our work to support the children of Nepal on this long road to recovery.

In the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake, many remote communities were left without access to healthcare, with health posts being completely or partially destroyed. In the year that’s followed, World Vision has helped in their restoration, so that nurses like Parbati can effectively reach out to communities and help to build and promote safe hygiene practices. We visit a recently renovated health centre in Ghorka, central Nepal, to see the difference it’s making…
Alongside concerns over living conditions and access to a safe and supportive education, children express feelings of fear and trauma that - if not dealt with - could affect their wellbeing in the future
