Manchester United's charity partner UNICEF is on the ground, evaluating what needs to be done to respond to the needs of the children, men and women affected.

Over 5,000 deaths have already been reported and over 50,000 people have been injured. As children and their families come to terms with the aftermath of the quake, water supplies are running low and the risk of waterborne diseases such as cholera is growing rapidly. UNICEF has over 200 staff working in Kathmandu and the surrounding area, delivering clean water and other life-saving supplies to children and families in danger.

Over 40% of Nepal's population are children, so please donate today, and help save children's lives.
