May 2015 – Nepal earthquake children’s appeal
The donation of May 2015 goes to:
A devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal, causing severe destruction and loss of life in Kathmandu and surrounding areas. An earthquake of this size can be deadly, toppling buildings, and destroying roads and infrastructure.
Hospitals area overcrowded, treating people in the streets and running out of emergency supplies. The power is out and communications are badly affected and we don’t yet have a full picture of the devastation. UNICEF fears the disaster, which is reported to have already killed hundreds of people, will have a severe impact on children.
UNICEF is on the ground, evaluating what needs to be done to urgently respond to children’s emergency needs for protection, water and sanitation, health and nutrition.
