Save the Children’s earthquake response in Nepal: a special one-year progress report
This report presents the Save the Children's one-year response and recovery efforts to the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal.
The Save the Children's earthquake response intervention set out to reach 600,000 affected people over a three year period, of whom half would be children. Ninety-eight percent of that target was reached within the first year, and the number of children we helped has already surpassed the targets for our responses in education, protection, health and nutrition, temporary shelters and livelihoods options. Support will now focus on meeting the long-terms needs of children and their families, which include safe and permanent schools for children and safe, permanent houses for families.
