Nepal Earthquake Relief and Recovery

by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV) Vetted since 2009 Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


On April 25, 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. The disaster killed over 8,000 people and injured many more. Millions of people were already in need of relief when a second earthquake struck on May 12. This second earthquake caused more deaths, injuries and property damage in areas already devastated by the first disaster. We've helped over 7,000 people to date, but we need your help so that we can continue work.

Nepal was devastated by two powerful earthquakes in less than three weeks. Almost 1 million homes were destroyed or damaged, in addition to 36,000 classrooms. Many people are facing hunger as dust from the building rubble contaminated food stores. There is an ongoing need for relief particularly during the cold, winter months. Support for full recovery will be needed for years to come


Your donations are helping us to provide ongoing relief to meet survivors' needs. They're also helping us to support education through the provision of permanent classrooms, school furniture and learning materials. As our work continues your donations will support even more long-term reconstruction and capacity building projects.

Long-Term Impact

By working with local partners and communities we're identifying and understanding long-term needs. We're also building important relationships of trust that are vital to providing effective services. We're also empowering and mobilising survivors to help themselves. With survivors actively participating our work will build their confidence and ability to take charge of their own recovery. This will make them more resilient in the long-term.
