Challenge

The people of Laprak have lost everything. Whole families have been wiped out. A lifetime's hard earned home and belongings disappeared in the blink of an eye. Sustenance farms have been washed away or buried. Not only the present, but also the future seems vanished in the space of a moment. The heartbreak and loss appears insurmountable. The situation is so devastating that some villagers have become devoid of all hope and have jumped from cliffs to their deaths.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support earthquake survivors. We have volunteers on the ground helping earthquake survivors. This fund will help our volunteers meet survivors' who are in immediate needs of food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. We are working around the clock directly arranging assistance to those villages at the epicenter.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that our organization is deeply-rooted and connected with local communities in Nepal since our volunteers have traveled to many villages to run human trafficking awareness campaigns in the last 4 yours. We are in best position to provide long-term support to disaster victims by providing immediate support of shelters. We will be better equipped to face future disasters.
