Over 8,000 people have been killed by a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015. There is widespread devastation across Nepal. The death toll is expected to "increase significantly" as emergency relief teams slowly reach rural areas. Villages have been the most devastated by the earthquake and many villages have been totally flattened. There were dozens of tremors and aftershocks after the first earthquake, further destabilizing structures and complicating rescue efforts. It is difficult to reach the majority of villages in Nepal even in the best conditions due to the rough terrain and poor infrastructure.
Our focus will be primarily on sustainable rebuilding projects in rural areas. All collected funds will go towards the long term rebuilding process in Nepal, which will take months or years. Please donate generously and spread the word. We will continue to provide updates and information regarding the allocation of funds on our website, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Thank you all for your support.
