Nepal Earthquake: Through the eyes of a child

In the video below, Ayush describes, in his own words, what happened when the Anzac Day earthquake hit Nepal and how he and his family are coping.

He says: “I cannot remember all the things but I can just remember my fear. I can remember the thought in my mind: I will surely die.”

No 11-year-old should have to fear dying or lose family and friends. We can’t stop natural disasters but we can help Ayush and his family and others like them to recover, rebuild and be better prepared no matter what the future holds.

Right now ChildFund is providing emergency relief in Ayush’s village. Your donation will help to distribute urgently needed food and shelter.

In addition ChildFund will be supporting children with temporary learning spaces, and trauma support, water and sanitation facilities, and training for parents, teachers and volunteers to protect children and be better prepared for disasters.
