NEPAL EARTHQUAKE

 

The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 9,000 people and injured more than 23,000.  Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed at UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley.

 

Nepal, is one of Asia's poorest countries, and has little ability to fund a major reconstruction effort on its own.

Close to 1.7 million children had been driven out into the open, and were in desperate need of drinking water, psychological counsel, temporary shelters, sanitation and protection from disease outbreak.

True Change Global Fund is focused on funding schools and safe spaces for these children to attend during their displacement..
