The UN estimates that 8 million people across the country have been affected by the disaster – almost twice the population of New Zealand. Speaking from Kathmandu, Oxfam’s Humanitarian Manager, Orla Murphy, said: “Oxfam is already reaching tens of thousands of earthquake survivors in camps across Kathmandu but it’s vital that we can also get shelter, water and food to the huge numbers of people in hard-to-reach rural areas. “Blocked roads, fuel shortages and supplies being held up at Kathmandu airport pose a big challenge for Oxfam and others. We’re doing everything we can to get our teams to the affected areas to assess what’s needed and get help to vulnerable people who need it as soon as possible.” – –  ]]>
