7 images from the Nepal earthquake response

Oxfam is in Nepal, providing clean water, sanitation, shelter and emergency food support to those affected by the April's earthquake. But the level of need is immense - many more people urgently need help.

Hundreds of thousands of people have suddenly been left without adequate food, water, shelter and medical care. We need to act fast.”
