nepal 2015 earthquake relief
The initial days after the April 25, 2015, devastating 7.8 Richter earthquake that struck Nepal, Hoste Hainse was active in visiting earthquake affected areas and shelters and providing water, food, tents, medicine, and other relief materials as needed. Hoste Hainse was also active coordinating logistics and transportation for international search and rescue teams as well as teams of international doctors, transporting them to areas both inside and outside of Kathmandu Valley. Once the need for immediate relief subsided, Hoste Hainse was involved in rebuilding lost/damaged infrastructure, primarily schools. For information on accomplishments, please visit our
In addition to running its own General Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund, Hoste Hainse also ran a dozen pass-through funds for various other smaller organizations/communities, which did not have the capability to accept international monetary donations, for them to collect and receive much needed funds as quickly as possible. Hoste Hainse passed on 100% of the funds without any overhead, with the exception of banking fees that the financial organizations that Hoste Hainse works with (PayPal, Wells Fargo) charged Hoste Hainse. The pass-through funds ran for over 3 months.
Hoste Hainse stopped receiving donations into the Earthquake Relief Fund on April 25, 2016, on the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake. If you are interested in donating, please donate into our general fund above.
For 100% transparency, the earthquake-relief donations that were received have been tabulated into a spreadsheet and uploaded onto this page.
