The earth quakes time and time again in this small Himalayan country. In 2015, almost 90% of infrastructure and homes were destroyed in Gorkha and Sindhupalchok, the epicentres of the most recent major earthquakes. Thousands of people died. Natural disasters in Nepal affect people who had little enough to begin with: A third of them live on less than USD 1.00 per day. Welthungerhilfe therefore focuses on disaster risk reduction in addition to emergency aid.
