Hi, I’m Lydia, and I oversee Mercy Corps’ disaster response in South and East Asia. Are you ready to test your skills?
April 25, 2015: Nepal was just hit by a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake, and we’re going to need every bit of help we can get to deliver lifesaving resources to survivors.
We’re getting reports that families’ homes in the area sustained serious damage and that, in more remote areas, entire villages were destroyed. With hundreds of thousands of people displaced from their homes, what do we have that can help?
The earthquake left many families with no choice but to use underground water from tube wells, and we’re starting to get word about a cholera outbreak spreading through communities. How can we help stop an epidemic?
The massive quakes caused landslides that wiped out cattle and entire farms, completely destroying many families’ livelihoods. Nepal was already one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, and the damage from the quake will put a strain on its people for years. What can we bring that will help people get back on their feet?
