Donate to Help the People of Nepal

April 28, 2015

As you are undoubtedly aware, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday, April 25th. While JSI is relieved to report that our staff in Nepal are safe, we are heartbroken by the deadly effects of this disaster.

Nepal requires urgent aid to tend to its citizens and rebuild. The earthquake's effects are even more devastating to rural areas because they lack infrastructure and easy access to medical care.

Since 1981, JSI's partnerships with Nepalese NGOs have been crucial to improving health and health systems throughout the country. Local NGOs now need more support than ever to recover in the earthquake's aftermath.

JSI is working in conjunction with our partner, World Education, and the UN, to ensure that relief gets to those who need it most in a coordinated way.

100% of every contribution you make through JSI and World Education will go directly to nongovernmental organizations responding to this disaster on the ground.
