Nepal Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund

by GlobalGiving


On April 25, 2015, a 7.8M earthquake struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu. On May 12, 2015 a second, 7.3M earthquake struck. Aid groups and local nonprofits are mobilizing to provide support and emergency supplies to the people impacted by both earthquakes. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts in Nepal.

The earthquakes between Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Kodari caused extensive damage in Nepal. More than 8,000 people lost their lives in the earthquakes, and 3.5 million people were displaced from their homes. Our nonprofit partners are responding-more than 87 of them have asked for help funding their relief and recovery efforts for survivors on the ground.


All donations to this fund will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
