Your Incredible Support

On behalf of Gopal, Thank you so Much!
On behalf of Gopal, Thank you so Much!

Thanks so much for supporting Nepal earthquake survivors like Gopal.

Gopal is 46 years old and lives with his wife and three children in the Tukucha area of Kavre district. Their home was destroyed in the first Nepal earthquake and since then they’ve been trying to build a new shelter. But while they’ve been able to build a frame from bamboo they’ve lacked the materials needed to finish the job.

But now because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide a Shelter Repair Kit for Gopal, his family, and for other families like theirs.

These kits will provide the materials these families need to finish putting a roof over their own heads. This will protect them from the monsoon rains and help them to avoid exposure and resulting poor health.

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Gopal, his family, and families like theirs, right here on GlobalGiving. Should you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email We’d love to hear from you!

One last time, thanks so much for helping to put a roof over the heads of Gopal and his family.
