Over five million people were affected by two powerful earthquakes which struck Nepal in April and May 2015. Help us deliver aid where it’s needed most.

Please donate to our Nepal earthquake appeal

CAFOD and our partners began delivering aid within hours of the first earthquake, and we are continuing to work hard to support families who have had their lives torn apart.

How can I help?

£5 provides a family with seeds and training to grow vegetables to support their nutrition and income.

£30 trains a mason in earthquake-resilient house building techniques.

£200 provides a family with a permanent source of clean water for drinking, washing and farming.

In coalition with our partners, we provided food, shelter kits and emergency supplies to more than 350,000 people across 15 earthquake-affected districts in the first few months. CAFOD’s team on the ground provided technical expertise around water, sanitation and hygiene management, and in the protection of children and vulnerable adults, as well as management support to our partners.

Over the first winter following the earthquake, CAFOD’s partners delivered winterisation support – including blankets, tarpaulins, foam mats, and grants for clothing and fuel – to over 37,000 people, to help them through the colder months.

More than half a million homes were destroyed by the earthquakes, and attention is now focused on the massive task of reconstruction. CAFOD and our partners are reconstructing schools and supporting thousands of families to rebuild their homes.

Giovanna Reda, CAFOD’s Head of Humanitarian Programmes for Asia, Middle East and Latin America, said:

“The generosity and compassion shown by our supporters is enabling our partners to restore the dignity of the people affected and help those who survived the earthquakes to rebuild and prosper”.
