On the 25th April 2015, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal which claimed over 9000 lives and injured 23,000 and caused mass destruction to houses and in some areas, whole villages. The continuous aftershocks left 3million people homeless and in need of food, shelter and clean water, and months later hundreds of thousands of people still remain without a home.
Jay Nepal is an action-based humanitarian team that is officially registered as an NGO in Nepal, as well as a sister NGO (onlus) in Rome, Italy. We are a volunteer-based, apolitical and non-religious, group working on post-earthquake responses, relief and recovery in communities across Nepal.
The progress Jay Nepal has made on the ground, in the aftermath of the earthquakes, has created not only a very positive reaction from the Nepali people, but also an awareness and engagement in action for the younger Nepali generation.
