The situation in Nepal
The tragic earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015 caused over 8,000 deaths, injured thousands and resulted in severe damage to property. The country’s children are particularly at risk due to dire living conditions: water is rare and of poor quality, malnutrition is widespread, and education and medical care are practically non-existent. In some regions, children and youths are also exposed to forced labour and sexual exploitation.
