Earthquake Relief: Providing Safe Drinking Water

by Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness Vetted since 2008 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 25 April 2015 and 7.3 magnitude on 12 May claimed life of around 9,000 people in Nepal and directly affected above 8 million people. Due to the destruction of houses, people were forced to refuge in open space and many lost their belongings. Around 24,000 classrooms and other school facilities have been damaged. With the limited water supply and the probability of using contaminated water, there is a high risk and increase of health and hygiene issues.

Due to loss of houses and buildings, people are obliged to refuge in communal shelters. The lack of accessibility and various other conditions and situations, the basic needs of survival like use of safe and treated water cannot be ensured. Hence, at this situation there is a high probability of spreading of water borne diseases in the community due to lack of safe and treated water. Children are facing difficulties due to the damage of water sanitation facilities in their school.


ECCA, as a leading organization in the sector of community development, is working at the ground level in Nepal. Through mobilizing our youth volunteers / counselors in the community, our team will be active in production and supplying chlorine solution in various communal shelters as well as in rural areas. ECCA will also reconstruct water and sanitation facilities in the school.

Long-Term Impact

Responding towards the immediate need of availability and use of safe and treated water, we will continue our work towards promoting safe drinking water campaign in Nepal. The project will help reduce the possible spread of water borne diseases in the affected areas and help change the behavior of the locals towards using safe and treated water in their day to day life.
