Help Heifer Project Families in Nepal

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Saturday, May 02, 2015 0 comments
As a result of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake last week, Heifer project families in Nepal have suffered significant loss of property, including their homes and livestock that donor generosity has provided them. The full extent of damage is still being tabulated — roads are clogged with debris and power and communication lines are still down.

Several days ago, Heifer staff in Nepal were able to reach some of the affected areas. At least 6,300 project participant homes across 12 districts had collapsed while another 1,900 families have sustained major damage. Heifer families also lost at least 1,500 animals. These numbers are expected rise.

For the most recent information regarding our Nepal projects, please visit the Heifer online blog here, which includes a map of the earthquake affected regions. It will be updated as more information is received from Heifer staff in Nepal.

Heifer International has identified an urgent funding opportunity to reach project families to meet their immediate needs, like food, tarps, mats and other shelter supplies.

Donate to the Nepal Disaster Rehabilitation Fund now.

Your response right now will determine how quickly our Heifer families in Nepal will be able to recover from this devastating earthquake.

Thank you for your support during this time of need. Please keep our Nepali project families in your thoughts.
