In response to the devastating earthquakes in 2023 that rattled Bajhang and Jajarkot districts of West Nepal, World Vision International Nepal implemented West Nepal Earthquake Response Project catering to the needs of the affected and displaced families.        

A total of 26,333 people affected by the earthquake in Bajhang, Jajarkot and Rukum-West have been supported with various food and non-food items, along with psychosocial counselling, construction of transitional shelters, water points, and toilet support. With the winter at its peak, 1300 winterisation kits were supported to the affected families who were living in makeshift tents to protect them from cold-related ailments.   

Children who were forced to study in open spaces due to damaged schools and classrooms were supported with 48 school kits and the establishment of 32 Temporary Learning Centres (TLC) to resume their studies in a safe environment.       

Likewise, a total of 1,320 pregnant and lactating women and 2,314 children below the age of five were supported with super flour to ensure food security amidst the disaster. Combining the nutritious blend of soybean, corn and wheat, super flour provided the affected children and pregnant, lactating women with essential nutrients for their optimal nutrition.                

The earthquake response project was implemented with the support of WV US, WV Taiwan, WV Australia, WV Hong Kong, WV Japan, WV Singapore, WV Canada, Microsoft, Start Fund Nepal in partnership with Dalit Help Society (DHS) Bajhang, Progressive Youth Society (PYS) Bajhang, Panchtara Yuwa Samrakshak Manch (PTYSM) and Nepal Technical Assistance Group (NTAG).
