A magnitude-7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on April 25, 2015, killing more than 8,800 people. It damaged or destroyed nearly 900,000 buildings, created avalanches in the Himalayas, and left almost 1 million children out of school. Major aftershocks, including a magnitude-7.3 tremor three weeks later, slowed recovery efforts and added to the devastation.
This was the deadliest disaster on record for the nation of 26 million people.
Since the catastrophe, World Vision has helped about 460,000 people with emergency relief. It plans to continue helping families recover and rebuild their lives into 2018.
Severe winter weather has come to the mountainous country, and an estimated 400,000 people living in high-altitude areas still need shelter and basic necessities like blankets, fuel, heaters, and household supplies.
