Help Ace the Himalaya Rebuild Nepal

Ace the HImalaya Rebuild Nepal

 

Nepal was hit by 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 25 and a major aftershock of magnitude 7.3 on May 12. The results have been heartbreaking: over 8,500 people killed, more than 19,000 injured, nearly 500,000 houses destroyed, about 250,000 houses damaged and 6,000 schools destroyed which means nearly 1 million children can't return to school. In total, 8 million people are affected.

 

Aid Redistribution in NepalHelping the Victims

Sambhav Nepal, the charity Ace the Himalaya is involved in, has been active for many years in the rural parts of Gorkha, close to the epicenter. So far they have distributed:

  • 16,000 kg of rice, lentils and salt, and tarps in Arupokhari and Manbu villages
  • 1,200 roofing sheets to three schools in Manbu, Aprik and Aruchanaune villages

You can't help but feel deep sadness at the sights of destruction. There are villages like Aprik where every house is collapsed or too unstable to use. And some villages where relief supplies haven't reached. (Ace the Himalaya and Sambhav Nepal were the first aid team to arrive in Manbu.) The people there need so much help but we ourselves can't make a big difference.

 

For that, we need your help.

Namaste from NepalUpcoming Plan
We need more relief supplies for the victims. Soon we are heading to the villages in Gorkha with aid. Some of the villages we are visiting such as Sama Gau, Prok and Lo are located at high-altitudes. They can be reached only by helicopter as the trails have been damaged due to landslides triggered by the earthquake. And we are also planning to visit 15 schools to distribute roofing sheets and assess the damages for our school-rebuilding project.

 

Ace the Himalaya appreciates you for taking the time to help them! Please pass this article to someone who is eager to help! Namaste
