Tarps to Shelter Earthquake Victims

No other relief organization has reached this area yet.

Desperately needing tarps for shelter, their homes collapsed from the violent shaking, families gather hopelessly in destroyed villages.

Rural land surrounds Kathmandu, Nepal, the city that has suffered two major earthquakes in less than a month. This land contains many small villages where the populations are smaller than the densely populated city, therefore given less priority (for many valid reasons) to those providing aid. The heart of the local GHNI workers, however, is to bring help and hope to the hidden and hurting…reaching those who often wait longest for help.

Here’s a look into one village our workers are helping…

As you can see, in just one day, 180 families in this one village are now homeless in need of shelter. This is just one of the many villages needing help.

Our GHNI staff, lead by Kiran Karki, are bringing locally sourced food and medical supplies. The greatest need, however, are tarps to make temporary shelters until these communities are able to rebuild. One tarp ranges from $40 to $70.

Will you fund a tarp for a family affected by the earthquakes?
