Your support makes it possible to rebuild lives.
It was a few minutes before noon when Saninani Bhujel felt the ground begin to shake violently. After making sure her son was safe, she turned her attention to her goats. They were tied up inside their shed. Saninani had just watched as her house collapsed into a pile of rubble; the goat shed could crumble at any moment too.
She untied her goats and lead them to safety. And not a moment too soon — the next aftershock toppled the shed.
Saninani’s family lost so much that day. But they had their lives and their goats — and a reason to believe they could overcome this tragedy.
Disasters strike just about everywhere Heifer is working. But the earthquake in Nepal last year was so powerful, so destructive. It also struck in a part of the country where Heifer International has been working for decades, which put us in a position to make a difference.
Thanks to an outpouring of generosity from donors like you, we were able to respond quickly. In fact, as soon as we could reach our project villages, we delivered blankets, tarps and other emergency supplies. We also began implementing a series of recovery plans. A small team returned to the area to follow up on the impact of our support.
The work your donation makes possible is so important. The depth of poverty and the widespread discrimination that women like Saninani face are both challenges. But we can overcome them by continuing to work together.
Please, make another gift today to support our projects in Nepal and around the world. Each time you donate to Heifer you change a life forever.
