Project Overview

In April and May 2015, Nepal was struck by two devastating earthquakes registering at 7.8 and 7.3 on the Richter scale, respectively. These earthquakes claimed the lives of more than 9,000 people, injured over 23,000 people, left hundreds of thousands of residents homeless, and caused irreparable damage to countless family homes, villages and heritage buildings. To help victims of the earthquakes, SMEC Bangladesh employees raised $28,000 through personal contributions. These funds were distributed to individuals in the worst affected areas of Dolakha, Sindhupalchowk, Kavrepalanchowk, Nuwakot and Dhading, whose homes had been damaged or destroyed in the earthquakes.
