All We Can is responding to the recent devastating earthquakes through experienced local partners and providing support to some of the most affected communities.

Please give to our Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Your gift will enable us to respond quickly to the crisis.

The 25 April earthquake, the worst in 81 years, caused devastation in the capital city Kathmandu as well as in isolated mountain areas of the country including Gorkha district. The epicentre of the earthquake, which measured 7.8 in magnitude, centred around 50 miles east of the second city, Pokhara. Over 8000 people are already known to have died, and thousands of homes and public buildings have been damaged or destroyed.

A second earthquake on 12 May, with its epicentre further east, caused further fear and devastation.

All We Can has been supporting partners working in this region for a number of years and is responding to the humanitarian crisis through them, drawing on their local knowledge and expertise to ensure an effective and sustained response.

We are providing immediate relief to some of the most affected communities, including distributing food, tarpaulin sheets and mosquito nets to those in need. We are also supporting teams from our partner Kopila, which has expertise in trauma management and mental health issues, to provide emergency counselling to survivors.

Gifts to our emergency appeal will enable All We Can and our partners to respond quickly to those in greatest need. Please give all you can.

As well as providing relief to help people through the immediate crisis, we will be supporting the longer-term rebuilding and recovery work that will be necessary in the months and years ahead. We have been working with partners in Nepal for many years, and will continue to do so, including helping communities to be better prepared for future disasters.
