We believe big problems can be addressed simply:
by creating spaces where ready solutions come to life.
When people have strategic clarity, excellent support,
and the freedom to innovate…anything is possible.

We are deeply saddened by the April 25, 2015 earthquake in Nepal. The epicenter in Western Gorkha was only about fifty miles from us in Pokhara, a city which was spared because the quake travelled East.  However, our staff, friends, and extensive network of colleagues now find ourselves in close proximity to devastated rural areas where tens of thousands of lives and livelihoods have been lost.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be applying the knowledge we have gained during ten years of community-based rural health care to the work that lies ahead in this new reality. We are coordinating with other agencies and doing everything we can to lend our expertise and manpower to the massive recovery effort ahead.  To this end, we have established an Earthquake Relief Fund that will be distributed in the most efficient manner possible to help those suffering so close to us.  For the moment, there is critical need of basic rescue, shelter, food, medical care, and coordination between the flurry of outside agencies gradually descending upon the country we call home.

We greatly appreciate your support in these endeavors, now and as the future comes.  There will be an untold amount of work to do.
