Let's build a house in Nepal!

£1,110 of £1,500 goal

Raised by 39 people in 17 months

The people of Nepal have been unfailingly kind to me. They have led me up the world's highest mountains, and protected me from crocodiles and tigers. It is my turn to do something for them.

We've all seen earthquake pictures from Nepal. Collapsed temples and people huddling in tin shacks to shelter from the monsoon. 

It's easy to withdraw into a state of helplessness in the face of such need. We can't rebuild a town - we can't even rebuild a village.

But we can rebuild one house. We can make it strong enough to withstand another tremor or two. We can keep one family safe and dry, with space to cook and sleep and for the children to play. We can - and we will - give them a future.

For the ripple of hope for one family can become a tide of hope for others.

Many thanks to everyone who has given money - there is a family in Nepal who will be safe and dry in the next Monsoon.

And - thanks to many more donations than appear here (friends, family, general well-wished with a spare penny or two and a cheque book) one house is built, and we're beginning a second - this time an older couple who have been living in a tent.

We've built one house in Nepal - can we build a second?

One month in, and we're over half way there. With donations I've been given at home, we've got the foundations and the walls. Now - can we raise the roof??

Such generosity. I can't thank everyone enough for all the support and encouragement you've given me with this.

We've got the foundations ... now for the walls.

good to hear how the ordinary people are coping. Was in Nepal many years ago and good to be able to help with a direct donation. Thank you for doing this. Pat
