Our response to Earthquake of 2015

On 25th April 2015, Nepal lost more than 9,000 lives and saw some of its most significant heritages crumble to ground. With 23,000 people injured and more than 500,000 houses partially or completely damaged, development agency’s role became even more prominent.

SNCCN, in its bid to do whatever little it could, swung into immediate action. Right from the second day following the disaster, a team of 25 volunteers set off for three earthquake hard-hit zones –Kavre, Sindhupalchok and Nuwakot in order to distribute relief funds.

By the end of December 2015, the Foundation had successfully implemented two phases of activities. Phase One comprised of relief distributions (beginning from 1 May to 31 July 2015) by which food and non food items (NFIs), tarpaulins, tents and blankets were successfully distributed to affected people based on their needs assessment. With national priority shifting towards reconstruction and rehabilitation, SNCCN too has shifted its accordingly and plan to construct Pre-Fabricated houses and permanent earthquake resistant houses for earthquake survivors with the support and collaboration of like-minded donor agencies.
