Since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, UN Women has been working to improve communications, safety and health for women and girls.

With your help, thousands of the most vulnerable women affected by the earthquake have now received urgently needed supplies, including dignity kits.

The dignity kits contain essential items such as soap, underwear, a change of clothes and sanitary products, allowing displaced women and girls to maintain respect, health and hygiene in their daily lives following the devastating earthquake.

As the fateful earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April, 22-year-old Shanta Tamang went into labour. Shanta’s mother rushed her to the nearest hospital. The next day, baby Rehan was born.
