Nirmala, 30, is pleased to have new, warm clothing for her baby. Her family lives in Sindhupalchowk, Nepal, a high altitude area that is cold and snowy in winter and was badly affected by an earthquake in 2015.
Winter weather in Nepal is making life hard for 3 million children under the age of 5, especially those whose families lost their houses, possessions, and livelihoods to the 2015 earthquakes.
Parents of young children whose families were affected by last year’s earthquakes tell World Vision staff they are struggling to meet their children’s needs.
“I did not have enough money to buy warm clothes to protect my baby from winter illness,” says 28-year-old Kabita Acharya. Kabita received a winter kit of baby supplies from World Vision. The kit contains a warm hat, gloves, socks, a jacket, a sleeping bag, and diapers.
