• Help children in Nepal

    Two major earthquakes have struck Nepal – only a few weeks apart – and have caused widespread devastation across the country.

    Many children have lost their families, homes, and schools. Aftershocks continue, and the threat of landslides – particularly in remote areas – is real.

The Three R's – Our Approach

  • Response (0–3 months)
    As soon as possible after a disaster hits – usually within 24 hours – we begin work to meet the immediate survival needs of people affected by the disaster.
  • Recovery (2–12 months)
    We help families to make a living again to strengthen their economic security, and to ensure children can continue their education and remain safe from harm.
  • Reconstruction (9–36 months)
    We continue to focus on children's physical, psychosocial and educational wellbeing. We also help their communities to prepare for future crises.

Your continuing, regular contributions to the fund enable us to invest in poor communities for the long term, helping them to recover from the disaster, rebuild, and prepare for future crises.
