Water is life : Oxfam's humanitarian response to the Nepal 2015 earthquake

On 25 April 2015, a massive 7.6 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal that left nearly 9,000 people dead and destroyed or damaged more than 850,000 homes.

Oxfam immediately responded by providing lifesaving relief including emergency food items, drinking water and by setting up temporary shelters and emergency latrines.

Three years later, our response has contributed to creating lasting change and support vulnerable people, especially women, to be directly involved in improving their own well-being and that of their communities, helping to foster solidarity and social cohesion.
