With an aim to meet emergency needs, strengthen the resilience and self-recovery of affected communities, and restore a sense of safety, World Vision’s Nepal Earthquake Response has been active for three years and reached significant milestones.
Most notably, we’ve reached more than 573,000 people, including 248,259 children, across 10 of the hardest hit districts.
Now, as World Vision finalises its response, the communities we’ve worked with are more self-sustainable and better prepared to withstand future shocks and meet new challenges with greater confidence.
Liz Satow, National Director of World Vision Nepal, says as the response wraps up, donors and all those involved must be acknowledged.
“We would not have been able to carry out the response without them,” she says.
“Particular thanks also goes to the World Vision Nepal staff and local partners who persevered under difficult circumstances to make lasting change in earthquake-impacted communities. Thank you!"
