Challenge

On Saturday 25th of April, 2015, at 11:56 am local time, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal, and its capital Kathmandu. A Metropolis of over 2.5 million people, the Kathmandu Valley is also the most earthquake vulnerable city in the world, with construction often very poor, and infrastructure nearly non-existent. The full extent of the damage remains unknown, but initial reports suggest massive damage and loss of life, with the death toll rising to 686 within the first few hours.

Solution

IsraAID will deploy its emergency relief team to provide food, water, and relief items, medical services, and psycho-social services to devastated communities within the Kathmandu Valley and outside. The immediate concerns are basic supplies, shelter, and medical services for the injured

Long-Term Impact

Initial efforts are focusing on the immediate survival of those without access to food, clean water, or medical services. At the same time, IsraAID's ERT will perform needs assessments to focus efforts on long-term recovery via agriculture, fishery, and water infrastructure, as well as capacity-building in the field of psycho-social services (PSS) to increase coping mechanisms and resilience after tragic events such as this earthquake
