NEPAL EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
It has been almost 2 years since the devastating earthquake, and thousands of children still need permanent shelter and safe classrooms to enable them to return to school.

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.
