Challenge

The worst earthquake to strike Nepal in decades has brought massive death and destruction. Large aid agencies are struggling to deliver lifesaving care, especially to remote areas. But MADRE and our on-the-ground partners are already mobilizing to bring emergency aid to women and families in the most hard-to-reach areas, including pregnant women and mothers with newborns.

Solution

Through their local knowledge and knowhow, on-the-ground grassroots activists can often reach areas that large aid agencies cannot. Our local partners in Nepal know who is most vulnerable and what their most urgent needs are. Together, we're meeting urgent needs for food, clean water, shelter, medical care and more.

Long-Term Impact

Emergency humanitarian aid and supplies in this crisis can literally save lives. Providing care now will better equip women and families in Nepal to weather the crisis and rebuild their communities in the future.
