To our colleagues at ECPAT in Nepal, CWIN, Maiti Nepal, Shakti Samuha and ECPAT Luxembourg in Nepal,
On behalf of ECPAT’s global network, our thoughts are with you during this time. We express our concern and condolences to all those in our Network who have ties to this region.
UNICEF has reported at least 940,000 children living in areas severely affected by Saturday's earthquake in Nepal are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The 7.9 magnitude earthquake and aftershocks, caused destruction across the country, including more than thousands of fatalities and widespread building damage.
To the ECPAT Network, if you would like to contribute to the relief effort please consider supporting one of our partners in Nepal through the following links:
