One month since the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, relief operations continue to scale up ahead of the monsoon season. Over 300 agencies are supporting the Government-led response.
Humanitarian partners estimate some 2.8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Over 860,000 people are in immediate need due to loss of shelter, limited road access and poverty.
To reach remote communities in mountainous villages, traditional Nepalese delivery methods are complemented by porters.
On 26 May, standard customs requirements and procedures for Nepal will be reinstated.
