Nepal Earthquake response

  • Himalayan Trust’s Rebuild Appeal raises over $200,000      1 May 2015
    Posted by: Himalayan Trust

    The Himalayan Trust has been overwhelmed by the generosity of New Zealanders with their Rebuild Appeal so far raising over $200,000. The Appeal was launched immediately in response to the Nepal earthquake and funds will be used to rebuild communities in the Solukhumbu region, where Sir Edmund Hillary’s Trust has worked for the past five decades. The total includes a $50,000 fund from the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as announced by Murray McCully this week.

    While it will take time to fully understand the immensity of this disaster, especially given difficulties in accessing remote regions and in communications, many public buildings such as hospitals and schools have been damaged or destroyed. The Himalayan Trust has a team currently heading to the Solukhumbu region to assess the full extent of the damage.
