Oxfam today stepped up its relief effort to help an initial 350,000 people hit by the earthquake in Nepal, providing clean water, toilets and shelter to thousands of people.
While Oxfam and others rush humanitarian relief to Nepal, the country has long been desperate for a huge, sustained investment to strengthen its physical infrastructure in order to keep its people safer, and to develop its economy and services so that local communities and the state had enough assets to fall back on.
In response to the devastating earthquake in Nepal today, Oxfam's team in Nepal is assessing humanitarian needs. In addition, a team of technical experts is arriving with supplies to provide clean water, sanitation and emergency food supplies. Please donate to Oxfam's Nepal earthquake appeal.
