On the spring of 2015, two big earthquakes of 7.8 & 7.2 rector scale hit Nepal causing death of over 9,000 people and making over three million people homeless. This tragedy caused an economic loss of over $10 billion which was very devastating for already struggling country.
In the aftermath of the quake many teams from Nepal and all over the world started to distribute immediate relief items, i.e. tarps, tents, food, & sanitation items. A strong spirit of solidarity among individuals & organizations was born right away which was a reminder of the story of the mythological bird, the phoenix, rising again from the ashes of defeat. From this synergy and cooperation among concerned individuals was born TOGETHER FOR NEPAL registered with the Nepal Government and affiliated with the Social Welfare Council.
