Love in a Basket

Description

Rina, 22, holds a winter kit she received from World Vision. She is worried about caring for her 3-month-old son living in a cold temporary shelter. "He even suffered from pneumonia and typhoid already," she says.

About 400,000 people who survived last year’s earthquakes in Nepal need emergency assistance to survive brutal winter weather, according to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). The U.N. Children’s Agency says 3 million children in Nepal are at risk of disease or death this winter.

World Vision has provided aid to more than 460,000 individuals affected by the Nepal earthquake and distributed more than 1,800 winter supplies kits to affected families.

Family winterization kits include jackets, hats, and socks for adults and children, as well as wool blankets, hot water bottles, and a duffle bag. Women also receive a woolen shawl and sari.

Internal unrest and disputes along Nepal‘s border with India have led to shortages of food, medicines, vaccines, and fuel for heating and cooking.
