Response to Nepal Earthquake

Himalayan Trust launches Rebuild Appeal in response to Nepal earthquake

The Himalayan Trust is deeply concerned about the impact of the earthquake in Nepal yesterday evening (New Zealand time) and has launched a Rebuild Appeal to raise funds for the Solukhumbu communities affected by this tragedy.

While it will take time to fully understand the immensity of this disaster, especially given difficulties in accessing remote regions and in communications, we are committed to working with local communities to help them rebuild their villages damaged by the earthquake. Donations for this can be made through our Givealittle appeal page here.

We will continue to assess this rapidly unfolding situation and while currently information is scarce, as we know more we will be sharing updates through our Facebook and Twitter pages. In the meantime we ask New Zealand to please give generously so we can help in what will be a long term response to a very serious disaster.
