On Saturday, April 25th, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake devastated Nepal. It hit the country and its people hard, in urban and rural communities alike. On May 12th, another powerful magnitude 7.3 quake hit the country.

Our teams have been active in Nepal for nearly a decade. We were on the ground when the earthquakes struck, which allowed us to quickly mobilise our emergency response.

Six months on, we’d like to thank you for helping us save lives and rebuild livelihoods in Nepal.

Thank you
