Anu (7) decided to help other community volunteers to prepare Oxfam hygiene kits for distribution in Sankhu, Nepal, because she thought it would be fun. "I love going to school but now my books and notes are all gone."
In Sankhu 980 houses collapsed when an earthquake measuring 7.9 magnitude struck Nepal on Saturday, 25 April 2015.
The Oxfam hygiene kits contain a bucket for clean water, a bar of soap, oral rehydration salts and towels. We have also set up emergency latrines to help prevent the outbreak of infectious diseases.
