EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL

We are horrified and dismayed at the enormous damage and suffering caused by these devastating earthquakes.

With our team on the ground in Kathmandu, we are delivering the most practical, direct assistance possible to those who are most in need. Our efforts are focussed on the Solu Khumbu (Everest) region badly affected by the second earthquake and where we have been working for over ten years but also Bhaktapur, Sindhupalchok, Dhading, the district of Gorkha and the valley of Langtang. As a small, flexible NGO with capacity to make quick decisions, we have been able to quickly get food, clean drinking water, shelter and other essential supplies out to these areas and beyond. With a nimble, responsive team on the ground we have been able to move swiftly and efficiently and we are grateful to our great partners, REED, who helped make this happen. When the second earthquake hit, it occurred in the Everest or Solukhumbu region where we have been working for over ten years to provide essential health and education services. Many AHF schools in the lower Solukhumbu, far from the tourist trails and where our work is concentrated, have been completely destroyed and hundreds of homes lost and as one of the only NGO’s on the ground right now providing emergency relief here, these communities are turning to the AHF for hope and for ongoing support.

DONATE NOW

The recent earthquake on Tuesday 12th May has severely damaged many of our communities in the extremely poor lower Solu Khumbu district, where our Teacher Training and Quality Education program is helping hundreds of children, families and schools. Our support is vital for these communities, many of which rely primarily on subsistence farming for food and survival.

We have sent two disaster management professionals from Australia to assess the damage in this area and to get emergency supplies out to these remote mountain villages. We have also established two emergency medical camps in the villages of Sotang and Salleri but in the coming weeks and months, these communities will need all the support they can get and we thank you for your valuable support.

Footage from the ground in Kathmandu

This video has been put together by long-term AHF supporter Sascha Estens in the last 48 hours, capturing Nepal in the wake of this devastating earthquake. This says everything about the spirit of the Nepalese people, the heart breaking need and how you can help.



Any excess funds that remain after the immediate emergency response period will go to the long term restoration of the communities in which we work.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all our Himalayan brothers and sisters at this time.
