Earthquake in Nepal: Statement by the Executive Director

25 Avril 2015
Author: UNFPA

On behalf of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, I express our deepest sympathy to the people and Government of Nepal following the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Kathmandu and the surrounding regions this morning. We are shocked and saddened by the death and disappearance of hundreds of people, the widespread destruction and the displacement of possibly hundreds of thousands of people. We present our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved nation.

UNFPA stands ready to join the international community’s efforts in extending all needed assistance to the Government and people of Nepal. The Fund is particularly concerned about the fate of pregnant women who have been affected by this tragedy, including those who might face potentially life-threatening complications. All efforts will be exerted to support their safety and the safety of their babies.
