Nepal earthquake: three months on

The road to recovery is long, and we still need your help. There are still families living under tarpaulins and children who want to go to school.

DONATE

What does it take to get a country back on its feet?

Commitment, your support, and global investment. At Plan, we have been working hard for three months to make sure we are able to commit to Nepal for the long haul.

On 25 April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. It shook schools and homes to the ground and thousands of Nepalese lost their lives. With more than eight million people affected (3.2 million children), this is the worst disaster the country has seen in recent history. And it will take years to recover.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to act fast and distribute life-saving aid to children and families doing it tough. From everyone at Plan, thank you to everyone who donated to our Nepal appeal – we couldn’t have responded without your help.


Haven’t had a chance to help? You still can.

The road to recovery is long, and we still need your help. There are still families living under tarpaulins and children who want to go to school. You can make a tax-deductible donation to our Nepal Appeal here.

What children want.

Children have a voice and they have the answers. As adults, we often assume that we know best and that we already know what children need. But sometimes asking kids what they want, is not exactly what we’d planned. So what do they want most of all?

To go back to school.

That’s why Plan is prioritising temporary learning centres where kids can keep up their education, play and be safe. So far, we’ve set up 166 schools in total.
