On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal near the capital city of Kathmandu, the worst of its kind in more than 80 years. More than 9,000 people were killed, a further 23,000 were injured and the destruction to infrastructure and homes was massive. On May 12, 2015, a second 7.3 earthquake struck the country, causing further devastation and loss of lives. 72 hours after the first earthquake, All Hands and Hearts arrived and got to work.
During our early response phases, All Hands and Hearts also completed the safe demolition of 38 schools, 33 homes, 4 health posts and removed debris from over 180 sites. We also constructed 100 transitional homes, 52 toilets, and temporary learning centers in 3 schools, along with 1 temporary health facility centers for the people who needed the help the most. In this phase of work, we are constructing a school with nine new disaster-resilient classrooms.
