Nepal Earthquake, April 25 2015

As most of you likely know by now, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on April 25. As of now, the death toll is nearing 7,000 with many more injured and millions affected. Helambu, which lies in Sindhupalchok district, has been significantly affected by the earthquake and many villages have lost a large proportion of homes. It is still difficult to know the exact extent of damage in these areas as communication remains limited.

Helambu Project staff are all safe and are now mobilizing to coordinate relief efforts in the region. Helambu Project is currently collaborating with HELP (Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership), who have been on the ground in the area, coordinating rescue and relief.

We appreciate everyone’s concern and will update about our progress with relief efforts as regularly as we can. Nepal, Helambu, and the villages we work in face a long road to recovery ahead. The earthquake has severely affected many lives, but many hands are now committed to building back together. We appreciate your support as we embark on this journey with them.
