Indigenous Women Mobilize in Nepal

Thanks to MADRE member support, we continue to respond to the devastating earthquakes that have rocked Nepal.

Two of our on-the-ground Indigenous partners are The Himalayan Grassroots Women’s Natural Resource Management Association (HIMAWANTI) and the National Indigenous Women's Forum (NIWF).

Together, we're delivering lifesaving aid to remote Indigenous communities off the radar of the large relief efforts. Without our grassroots partners, many of these communities would have no other sources of humanitarian relief. And now, these already weakened communities are at high risk of even more devastation as the monsoon season fast approaches.

MADRE has been in constant contact with our local partners, receiving first-hand updates of the needs on the ground. We just received a report from HIMAWANTI on their progress. They have delivered tents, blankets, soaps, water purifiers and first aid kits. They made sure that the most vulnerable people – like pregnant women, new mothers and disabled persons – receive these vital supplies.

And NIWF told us that MADRE support has brought tents, mattresses, food, clean water purifiers, feminine hygiene supplies and health kits to Indigenous families in the hardest hit areas of Nepal.

Here are two photos from NIWF’s aid distribution. Thank you for the lifesaving work you are making possible for Indigenous women and families in Nepal!
