Brother’s Brother Foundation Responds to Two Earthquakes in Nepal

Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) has partnered with Himalayan HealthCare (HHC) a Nepal-based charity, ADRA International and others to provide emergency relief in the wake of the April 25th magnitude-7.8 earthquake that recently devastated the Kathmandu region. This disaster destroyed more than 500 health posts, 26 hospitals and 5,000 schools and has affected more than 8,000,000 people. Economic damage exceeds 1/4 of Nepal’s gross national product.

BBF’s response continues following a second 7.3 magnitude earthquake on May 12. BBF sent another medical shipment for Nepal in the same week to support medical teams with their relief efforts.

Himalayan HealthCare (HCC) has provided primary healthcare, education and income-generation opportunities in rural Nepal for 23 years.  In addition to training health workers, HCC provides vaccine administration, supplies essential medicines to remote villages and helps patients secure specialty care. HCC’s latest medical team arrived in Nepal only hours following the May 12th earthquake.

Donations to BBF are helping to purchase needed supplies and will help with reconstruction efforts.

BBF is currently supporting five international medical teams with medical supplies and other local logistics. With HHC, BBF is supporting Dhading District Hospital, just west of Kathmandu, an earthquake damaged facility. Assistance to the hospital includes generators, medical supplies and logistical support for medical staff brought in by domestic and international volunteers to support this response.

BBF will also be working with ADRA International (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) which is focused on a response to the earthquake helping with health and shelter needs.

Donations to BBF will help to purchase needed supplies and will help with reconstruction efforts.
100% of all donations directed toward the Nepal Earthquake Disaster will be used for relief efforts.
