2015 Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund
On April 25 at about noon local time, a 7.8 earthquake hit 50 miles north of the Nepali capital in Kathmandu. Following the quake, 15 aftershocks hit the region, including one that registered 6.6.
The death toll has exceeded 8,800 and approximately half a million homes were destroyed and nearly 7,000 schools were as well. Tens of thousands of people are still living in temporary shelter nearly a year later, and school buildings have yet to be replaced. The rebuilding will continue for years. Give2Asia is committed to continuing to support the people of Nepal throughout this long recovery.
Since 2001, we made over a quarter of a billion dollars in philanthropic investments to communities in 25 countries, and launched recovery campaigns following over 50 natural disasters. We believe in developing sustainable and long-term rehabilitation programs with local organizations with expertise specific to the affected areas and people. Our strategy of disaster giving is founded on local knowledge, community trust, and long-term recovery.
