Help children and families

Thousands of children and families are in urgent need of support following the devastating earthquake that hit the Kathmandu valley in Nepal on 25 April and subsequent aftershocks.

More than 8,700 people have been killed and thousands have been injured. Entire homes have been reduced to rubble, forcing families to sleep in the open, exposed to the elements.

Plan International emergency teams are on the ground providing shelter, water, health care, education, emotional support and child protection - but we need your help.
