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, the district of Gorkha and the valley of Langtang.

Tax-deductible donations can be made by using the link below (please enter 'Earthquake Appeal' in the comments box):

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.

The damage and destruction from the second quake in this area is much greater than the one on April 25, with many houses and schools collapsing and major landslides occurring. We have mobilised emergency supplies to the area but in the coming weeks and months, these communities will need all the support they can get.

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.

We love nepal
