Nepal’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake has created immense devastation for the women, children, and families who, to begin with, had very little. The death toll is nearing 4,000, with over 6,500 injured as of April 27th.
We have all seen pictures of families who did survive at a loss as their homes are not inhabitable, there is no clean water, food, and they have no access to clean supplies. As the Red Cross and other emergency relief organizations support emergency response, we are targeting donation funds to the villages surrounding Nepal who have always had very little, and now have nothing.
Villagers are sleeping in rudimentary tents outside in the fields as their homes are no longer inhabitable. There is no protection from the wind, rain, or other elements. There is no electricity, heat, or light. Children, elderly, and the sick are more at risk for illness and death now, than ever before.
Our long-time partners who have built schools and supported women’s groups, whose families and themselves live in the outskirts of Kathmandu, will be managing the distribution to ensure that funds are being used for the urgent needs, as well as for re-building. Funds will be sent every week as we receive donations.
Use the donation button on the right. After typing in a dollar amount and logging in, you can specify the “Nepal Earthquake Relief” for your donation.
Our hearts go out to the children and families devastated by the Nepal Earthquake and we are working closely with our trusted partners native to Nepal and the Kathmandu surrounding villages to ensure funds are being used quickly and appropriately to help families cope, survive this tragedy, and rebuild.

Nutrition Program for Mal-nourished Children in Nepal:
Children and their families in Nepal struggle with food security due to economic, cultural, and political factors. Geography and lack of education are main reasons why families in this verdant nation suffer from hunger six months out of the year.
Outreach and intervention projects for women and children in this population are based in peer-reviewed research and population survey data. We are looking to create programs that will instill long term change. The program is being developed with Scientific Advisory Board members native to and currently living in Nepal, and in collaboration with members of our Board of Directors.
If you are passionate about improving the infrastructure in west Nepal, please email: info@Go-MCH.org. You can also make a tax-deductible donation, we would greatly appreciate extra funds to help buy gardening supplies and teaching tools to help the families who need it most. Feel free to contact us with more questions.
