Three months after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake hit central Nepal, World Vision had assisted more than 133,000 people with relief goods and services such as Child-Friendly Spaces and Temporary Learning Centers, where children are attending classes until their schools are repaired or rebuilt.
“We’re nearly finished with our relief efforts [and are] moving into the recovery phase,” says World Vision’s response manager, Judy Moore.
Monsoon rains have led to an increase in landslides and flooding that makes it hard for aid agencies to reach isolated mountain villages. Shelter, clean water and sanitation, food, healthcare, and protection still are among the greatest needs. World Vision work of rebuilding and restoration will continue for a minimum of two years.
World Vision is working with government, other aid groups, and communities to see that children are cared for and protected. The 8 million people affected by the quake and aftershocks include 3.2 million children.
