Support Women-Led Recovery Efforts In Nepal

We are heartbroken by the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday, leaving widespread death, destruction and displacement in its wake.

Since then, Urgent Action Fund has been in close communication with our partners on the ground, many of who lost their homes, belongings, and, in some cases, loved ones.

What they have told us is that – as relief aid comes pouring in across the world – what is needed most right now is not more money, but long term support to rebuild their communities, organizations, and families.

Because Urgent Action Fund is not a relief organization, other organizations with established networks in the region are better positioned to help communities rebuild and heal. Below is a list of 5 women-led partner organizations that have asked for support for their long-term responses to the crisis. They are already mobilizing their communities to take action and welcome donations at this time.
