​​​​​On April 25, 2015 a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, killing thousands of people, and injuring thousands more. The earthquake demolished buildings, triggered a deadly avalanche, and has affected 8 million families - leaving many of them homeless. 

One year on, World Vision has reached 386,984 people in Nepal:
20,789 families provided with shelter and non-food items
72,000 assisted through repairs of health posts and provisions of medical supplies and equipment
118,999 people provided access to clean water 

“Our mission is far from accomplished – recovering from an earthquake of this scale can take 10 to 15 years, especially in such a complex geographic and political environment. Shelter is the critical issue as too many families are still exposed to harsh living conditions and extreme weather. Construction of permanent housing must accelerate and we’re training local masons and home owners to use building techniques that will ensure new structures are stronger, safer and sustainable.” – Michael Messenger, president, World Vision Canada.
