Nepal Earthquake Relief & Recovery
Thousands of Families Rebuilding in Wake of Devastating Earthquakes
Earthquake relief efforts in Nepal are giving way to activities focused on rehabilitation projects that will ensure Heifer participants are in more stable shelters where they can securely store belongings, including grains and other foodstuffs, and also escape heavy monsoon rains.
The initial 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 25 killed 65 Heifer project participants, destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and killed at least 1,500 livestock. Weeks after a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake shook the country, damage is still widespread. Until now, Heifer has focused primarily on providing temporary housing materials including tents, tarps, foam mattress rolls and ropes and other supplies to approximately 22,000 families in 12 districts.
Your donation will make a major impact in the lives of the families that need assistance. Please give now so that we can help our project participants throughout the long recovery process. The total amount of your contribution to the Nepal Earthquake Relief & Recovery Fund will be used to assist families in Nepal.
