Emergency Relief Work

Our recent work and update is set out in our Newsletter 2016.

In September 2011, an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale shook the Taplejung District of Eastern Nepal, claiming seven lives.  Over 100,000 children were directly affected and a number of schools destroyed.  The Himalayan Trust UK worked with the local communities and district educational authorities to cement the cracks and in some case totally rebuild the schools.
