Dear Donors,

The consequences of the devastating earthquakes of 25 April and 12 May 2015 are still visible in Nepal. The reconstruction projects of Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe are ongoing and showing progress. So far, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe has provided more than 8.2 million euros for assistance in Nepal. So far, around 635,000 people have benefited from the measures.

Never before had Nepalese people experienced a natural disaster of such magnitude: 8,500 people lost their lives and millions became homeless. 600,000 houses collapsed, 288,000 were badly damaged. Debris mountains and ruins shaped the picture in the villages. Fields were devastated, aftershocks and landslides made the situation worse. Many people slept outdoors and did not know what to feed on.

Help could start quickly

Thanks your donations Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe was able to respond immediately and begin emergency aid within just two hours. Thus, in the first two weeks after the earthquake, 100,000 people were provided with basic necessities, after six months, there were already 400,000. In addition to food, water, cookware, hygiene articles and blankets, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe distributed tarpaulins, corrugated iron and other building materials as well as tools for first shelters and repairs in twelve districts. This protected people first before the monsoon, then before winter.

We are now closing this project because we inserted all the project funds in running projects.

Thank's again for your support of the nepalese people. Let's hope that such a catastrophe will not happen so fast again.

Yours Michael Tuerk
