Help rebuild Nepal

On 25 April Nepal was devastated by an earthquake registering at 7.8 magnitude. Since then, a series of aftershocks have continued to damage the country. Over 8,600 people have died and more than 500,000 homes have been damaged or completely destroyed.

Monsoon season

Concern immediately responded to this disaster with survival kits, but now another problem looms: monsoon season is approaching. Heavy rains will create dangerous landslides where the tremors have weakened the earth. Torrential storms can tear roofs from insecure buildings. Flooding heightens the risk of diseases like cholera from spreading.

Sabiana’s story

Sabiana Saptoka and her young daughter Sandesh lived in a village perched high in the foothills of the Himalayas. When the first quake struck, the family’s home was entirely destroyed, along with everything they owned.
Now they are living in a makeshift shelter which offers little protection from the oncoming storms.

Shelter

Without robust shelter, monsoon season will be disastrous for families like Sabiana’s who have already lost their homes and livelihoods. Concern is providing the corrugated iron sheeting and tools that people need to build more durable shelter.

You can help

With so many homeless families, we urgently need your help to provide more of these life-saving materials – as quickly as possible.
