Today marks the One Year Anniversary of the Great Nepal Earthquake. The devastating disaster occurred on the 25th of April, 2015 at 11:56 AM with a magnitude of 7.8 and rocked the nation. The earthquake destroyed hundreds of thousands of buildings and triggered other natural calamities such as avalanches and landslides, in total killing almost 9,000 people and injuring almost 22,000.
The resulting chaos and destruction is still a matter of huge concern in the Nepal today. The people affected still struggle from getting out of the burden that the earthquake brought upon them and their families. The government has not been able to do much to help the victims, and your support has meant a lot to the people of Nepal.
ISAK’s ProjectNEPAL would like to take the opportunity to remember the victims of the earthquake and everyone affected by it even today.
If you wish to continue supporting the victims of the earthquake, please donate on our GoFundMe account for the recovering of victims of the Nepal Earthquake. Thank you for standing by Nepal in its time of need.

To mark the one year anniversary of the great earthquake in Nepal, our team held an event in the school, where we cooked and sold Momo, a famous Nepali dish. Along with the Momo, we also sold Nepali goods which we had brought with us from Nepal.
From the total profit we gain from this event, part of it will be used for the Kumamoto earthquake in Japan. We felt that it was imperative we do this - our project being an earthquake relief one. Also, most of our supporters and donors are Japanese.
We apologise for not being able to help other countries that suffered earthquake , but currently our reach is limited.
Regarding the Kumamato Earthquake
There was a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in Kumamoto, Japan last night, and 7.3 magnitude earthquake this morning. Afghanistan, Myanmar and Ecuador have had similar earthquakes over the past few days too. Prayers go out to all the victims and people affected. Nepal stands with you in these hard times, as you have stood with her.
Happy Nepali New Year 2073!!
The team here at ISAK's ProjectNEPAL would like to wish all our donors, supporters, friends and Nepalis all over the world a very Happy Nepali New Year 2073! May this year bring peace, sustainability and stability to the country.
The coming of the New Year also signals the coming of the one year anniversary of the Great Nepal Earthquake. It has been almost a year, and the suffering has still not ended. It's time to act now!
