Young Survivors

Description

One week after Nepal's 7.8-magnitude earthquake, World Vision staff talked to young survivors in Kathmandu about their losses and their hopes for the future.

The April 25 earthquake was the worst to hit the poor south Asian nation in more than 80 years. More than 8,000 people died in the initial quake and aftershocks that continue to jolt the region.

The parents of tens of thousands of children like Priti and Kashish are struggling to meet their family's basic needs.

World Vision plans to provide 100,000 people with food, hygiene kits, sleeping mats, blankets, water, and temporary shelter.

Our priority is to meet the immediate needs of children, so we’ve also set up Child-Friendly Spaces so they have safe places to play following the terrifying events of the quake.
