UNICEF is mobilising an urgent response to meet the needs of children affected by the earthquake in Nepal on 25 April. With children accounting for half the country's population, UNICEF fears the disaster, which is reported to have already killed thousands of people, will have a severe impact on children. UNICEF has prepositioned supplies, including water purification tablets, hygiene kits, tarpaulins and nutrition supplies, and is working with government and other partners to meet children’s immediate needs in the areas of water and sanitation, child protection, health and nutrition.
