UNICEF the main international organization that works in promoting the rights and wellbeing of every child, is on the ground working to provide critical aid to children and families affected by the quake. There have been reports of dwindling supplies of water and food, power outages, and downed communication networks. Hospitals are overwhelmed by the large number of wounded and tents that have been enabled outside hospitals are insufficient. Heavy rain is now also reported which can further worsen the conditions.
This crisis leaves children particularly vulnerable - limited access to safe water and sanitation will put children at great risk from waterborne diseases, while some children may have become separated from their families. UNICEF is working to provide essential medicines, medical and surgical kits, tents for hospitals and emergency drinking water.
- Mobilize staff and emergency supplies to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of children affected by the earthquake, focusing on water and sanitation, nutrition, education and child protection.
- Support tankering of water and provision of oral rehydration salts and zinc supplements to people gathered in informal settlements, and providing tents for field medical facilities.
- Provide two cargo flights with a combined 120 tonnes of humanitarian supplies including medical and hospital supplies, tents and blankets, for urgent airlift to Kathmandu
