ABARI in collaboration with BELIEVERS rapidly responded to the immediate needs of earthquake survivors in most affected districts.
On April 25 2015, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 followed by 7.4 Richter scale earthquake devastated the lives and physical infrastructure of Nepal. Over 10,000 people lost their lives and over 500,000 homes, 40,000 schools were destroyed. ABARI initiated a very small campaign to provide cotton tents and tarps to a community affected in Gorkha. The campaign snowballed and hundreds of people joined hands from all around the world to join this effort.
All of a sudden, from one village in Gorkha our effort scaled to most of Gorkha, Kavre, Sindhupalchok and Kathmandu and reached about 3000 families. Below is our activities on Immediate and Transitional Earthquake relief work:
