Nepal

 

On Saturday, April 25, 2015, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal – the largest earthquake the country had experienced in 80 years. This disaster resulted in severe disruptions in the affected areas. For Nepali households, the June rice planting season is the most important in terms of their livelihoods, providing food for household consumption as well as sale. However, families typically stored rice from the previous harvest for planting in the next harvest in shelters, which were destroyed in the earthquake. Save the Children’s work focused on providing seeds to farmers in the affected districts so they could grow food, kick start the local economy, and reduce widespread hunger.
