A little boy was born on the same day as the first devastating earthquake hit Nepal. Nicknamed Bhukumpa (earthquake), he is a symbol of hope and a reminder to his villager that life continues amid devastation.
His mother Rojina said,
"They come to see him every day hoping he will bring them luck."
The earthquake that struck Nepal at the end of April 2015 has changed the lives of almost a million children who because of the loss of their homes and a lack of drinking water, food and medical services are now reliant on humanitarian aid.
Two weeks after the devastating earthquake caused the humanitarian disaster in Nepal Croatian citizens, foundations and companies donated 700,000 Kuna to help the children and their families in that country.
In a short period UNICEF managed to provide 252,000 people with drinking water, hygiene products and medicine, with a total aid contribution of 121 tonnes. UNICEF established 28 child-friendly spaces in the temporary camps for refugee children, where the youngest could play, create, learn and receive psychosocial help during the crisis.
UNICEF and the World Health Organization started an immunisation campaign against measles, which will cover about half a million children.
