Summary

The remote villages Himalayan HealthCare has served for 23 years have been devastated by the recent earthquake in Nepal. Initial reports suggest high death tolls with entire villages leveled. Survivors are stranded without food, water or other essential supplies. Your donation will support Himalayan HealthCare's on-the-ground volunteers and health workers to provide immediate relief and recovery to those in Dhading who need it most.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The remote mountain villages of Tipling, Shertung, Lapa and Jharlang in Dhading District have been hard hit by the recent earthquake in Nepal. Communities in these remote villages, some a three days walk from the nearest road, have been leveled. Initial reports suggest high death tolls with survivors trapped without food or water. Donations will directly benefit the communities in these four villages.

How will this project solve this problem?

Himalayan HealthCare has been working in the Dhading villages for 23 years. We have staff and volunteers on-the-ground in the disaster areas and have mobilized other health workers from Nepal and India to support our relief and recovery efforts. Donations to Himalayan HealthCare will help fund food, water, shelter and emergency care for the remote mountain communities of Tipling, Shertung, Lapa and Jharlang.

Potential Long Term Impact

All donations will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in the remote mountain communities of Tipling, Shertung, Lapa and Jharlang. Initially, donations will help our first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, donations will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts including the rebuilding of homes and schools and the provision of micro-loans.
