July 14th, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti ended the lives of nearly 1,300 people with hundreds more still missing. More than 14,000 homes were destroyed and nearly as many severely damaged from the quake in the provinces of Cayes, Jeremie and Nippe in Haiti's southwest, leaving some 30,000 families homeless. Peace Winds is on the ground leveraging 12 of our disaster resilient community centers in the SUD as a a launching point for providing basic necessities to those most impacted.
Hurricane Matthew could have devastating impacts in Haiti, as the country has not experienced a storm of this magnitude since 1954. CARE is coordinating with the government to help people evacuate from areas at extreme risk. We are providing meals and supplies such as water bladders to provide clean drinking water, hygiene kits, tarps and blankets to people in shelters. CARE is appealing for immediate funds to ramp-up our emergency response and support the longer-term recovery of Haiti.
Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm and the largest in the region since 1966, struck the nation of Haiti on October 4, causing immense damage. This project will help the Haitian people rebuild their homes and lives while increasing their resilience to future disasters.
This Project will assist the people of Fond des Blancs,Haiti to secure roofs to their homes. We propose to accomplish this by conducting an existing building and construction practice survey and based upon this survey, devise a simple method and supply the necessary hardware to train the community on how to secure 50 roofs.
Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm, hit the south of Haiti on October 3rd through 4th, wreaking havoc in the region. Many people lost their roofs, rendering them homeless. The micro loan program will offer loans to women who were hit by Hurricane Matthew. Each will be able to borrow up to $100 for repairs, livestock purchases, etc. If 100 women borrow $100, this program will cost $10,000. This money, once paid back, will remain in a revolving fund that can be lent out again.
Cittareale is a village of four hundred inhabitants severely damaged by the earthquake that hit central Italy in 2016. The project involves the construction of a new building that will house a canteen with kitchen.

The quality of water supply in Nepal is always questionable due to lack of proper treatment system, pollution at source, no use of disinfection and no proper maintenance of water distribution system. Sanitation-related diseases account for 72% of total ailments and diarrhea continues to be one of the leading causes of childhood deaths in Nepal. COVID-19 outbreak has also created unprecedented health crisis. There is also indoor air pollution due to the use of traditional firewood cookstove.
Since the earthquake in 2015 we have been supporting rural schools through a range of interventions. Initially we were rebuilding classrooms and providing taps and toilets. This expanded to include educational bursaries, teacher training, libraries and anti-trafficking workshops. It is a little known fact that children who attend school regularly are far less likely to be trafficked. Help us to stamp out the sale and exploitation of children in Nepal through our school improvement programme.
Many children were orphaned or displaced by disastrous 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. Ama Foundation worked with anti-trafficking organizations and the Nepal government to help find these children a safe home. Since 2015, we have taken 30 new children into our home, which can house 75 children - but we currently only have funding for the 46 children who currently live there. Your contribution helps us to take in more children and give them a loving home, an education and a future.

This project aims to provide solar powered lamps as a sustainable substitute.
ECCA initiated School Environment Improvement Program in the year 2000. Experience has shown that enrollment of students increases and is maintained when facilities (toilets, water, greenery) are improved. Training teachers is also required to effectively manage the classrooms, develop positive relationship with children and community, and facilitate curriculum that leads to better knowledge of sustainable living. A common vision for the development of school is also required.
A 9 months mentorship program aimed at unleashing the social leadership of 15 adolescent girls of earthquake affected area of Nepal. This project will reach out to the girls in an individually tailored, empowering them with diverse skills. Nuwakot is a district with one of the highest destruction caused by earthquake in 2015, labor migration among adults and highest rate of girls trafficking. Hence, the need to enhance the leadership of adolescent girls is not only necessary but imperative.
In Nepal, there are still many parents who do not send their children to school because of financial hardship. School enrollment and attendance need to be increased through care, support and building up child competency. Students need to be encouraged through hands-on practical learning, which will make learning interesting. Through an integrated approach with the curriculum, students will be trained to understand and gain deeper insight on various environmental issues affecting our daily life.
Last year, a powerful earthquake caused devastation in many areas of Nepal. Remote regions, such as Gorkha and Sindhulpalchok, were among the worst-affected, with some people losing everything. PHASE had been working in these areas for many years, and within days was coordinating an emergency response to hand out relief and keep essential services running. Now, PHASE is supporting permanent rebuilding and long term recovery of these communities so they can again become self-sustainable.
Many villagers in remote Nepal have no electric sources and rely on kerosene lamps and wood fires that pose fire and health hazards. Household solar electric systems are a simple solution. They provide clean electricity and opportunity for women to be bearers of light in their communities. With your help Karuna-Shechen will train and empower women to install 104 solar home lighting systems in isolated villages.
HimalayanLife is building a regional school in Yangri, one of the hardest hit areas of Nepal in the 2015 earthquake. After substantial assistance in relief and rebuilding, the key to the future of the area is education. Only if good schooling is available to their children, families will reinvest themselves in the region and truly rise from the ashes, rather than migrating abroad and facing the uncertainties of migrant workers in India or the Gulf countries.
The Santi School Project has years of valuable experience reaching deep into the mountainous corners of Nepal, helping to shape lives for the better. This project will support rebuilding of schools and classrooms damaged or destroyed in the earthquake, both in villages where we have long-lasting partnerships as well as villages that need to restore their schools after the earthquake. 100% of funds we receive will be spent in Nepal.
On Saturday, April 25, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, followed by powerful aftershocks in the coming days. Destruction is widespread throughout the country and it is going to take a long time to recover. The American Himalayan Foundation has created an Earthquake Disaster Recovery Fund to help with long-term rebuilding and recovery as the people of Nepal struggle to put their lives back together in the months - and likely years - to come.
Four years ago this past April, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. At the time, we had a volunteer on the ground. Fortunately, she and clinic staff were safe, as well as the villagers. However, the clinic itself caved in, destroying medical supplies as well as staff and volunteer possessions. Funds are urgently needed to rebuild the Chanaute clinic and replace equipment and supplies so that we may continue treating patients in need. Please help us to reach our goal!
Nearly two years after the 2015 earthquakes hundreds of families are living in dilapidated temporary shelters. Thousands of children are learning in temporary spaces, many of which are open to the harsh Himalayan elements. They do not need to. Even unsafe houses may be salvageable through retrofitting, which is much faster and cheaper than rebuilding from scratch. We want to get families back in safe houses and schools now. Our Board and supporters will match your donation 100%, up to $45,000.

There is a refugee crisis at Europe's door. The reason we talk about a "crisis" is not because of the number of refugees but because of the incapacity of Europe to deal with the problem in an organized and predictable way. There is a need for all European countries to cooperate with solidarity in order to confront this problem with cooperation and goodwill. The Greek islands receive 2.500 refugees every day.
