We are beginning to rebuild our schools and libraries! Lend a HAND
On April 25th, 2015, at 11:56, Nepal was shaken by a 7.8 magnitude Earthquake, reducing century old temples to piles of rubble, destroying homes and taking the lives of over 9,000 people. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy. As Nepal begins to rebuild, we stand with the people of Nepal.
The epicenter was located in Gorkha, roughly 15 miles from the village of Phulkharka, in the Dhading district of Nepal, where HANDS has built a library and two schools. These buildings were severely damaged and HANDS will have to rebuild, but we will rebuild.
HANDS has sent 1,000 solar lights to the rural villages of Nepal and provided tin to construct temporary shelters. Over 90% of homes were destroyed in these remote regions and with the monsoons in full effect, the need for shelter is essential. As rebuilding commences, Nepal needs our help more than ever.
