Fishhook partners in India work to provide relief to the victims of natural disasters and other tragedies that cause suffering to people.
Nepal earthquake - april 25, 2015
This magnitude 7.8 quake killed almost 9,000 people in Nepal and left over 22,000 injured.
While governments and organizations around the world scrambled to provide aid, most of the resources went to Kathmandu and the area immediately around the city. But it was difficult to get aid to some of the remote villages.
And while Fishhook doesn't work directly in Nepal, our partners do have connections there. Our best connection for providing aid was the brother of a student at the Jaya Nursing School. The brother in Nepal named Juju was a schoolteacher in a village called Kavre, about 50 miles east of Kathmandu. Juju sent the photos above showing devastation to the school (left) and nearly all the 60 homes in the village (one of which is shown on the right).
