Nepal Earthquake Emergency Appeal
We've been involved in Nepal since 2007 and are shocked and saddened for this region. We can all help be part of the rebuild this year.
Nepal and India suffered badly after a devastating earthquake on April 25th 2015. The reports are flooding in.
Communication is a problem in and out of Kathmandu. We have connections in Kathmandu and we are well placed to bring very real solutions to needs on the ground over the months and years ahead. This will need an enormous effort required by many groups.
We can help Rebuild Nepal!
Kia Kaha Nepal.

In 2007 Orphans Aid had its first introduction to Nepal after hearing about the plight of children in Pokhara. Upon investigation Orphans Aid began to fund a home in Kathmandu that was home to 11 children between 6 years and 16 years of age. The children were not receiving regular meals and were suffering. Their stories were varied but each one coming from harsh backgrounds – some losing both parents, some losing one parent. As a result the children have been able to receive a very good education which is important to seeing the poverty cycle broken. This particular home was disbanded in 2011.
This project relies heavily on much needed regular sponsorships.
" What I love about Orphans Aid is that they are willing to take on children that other aid agencies will not. Most child sponsorship charities will only support a child if he/she are primarily cared for by family/relatives/community. Orphans Aid however looks after the totally abandoned child... the child who has no one what-so-ever. Orphans Aid are willing to foot the bill for housing, medical, specialist care (many such children have delayed development, speech, social & fine motor skills), education and most of all – love and nurture. Yes, sure its a far more costly exercise to look after orphans who have no-one... but doesn't that just make it SOO much more worthwhile?!"
