Small gestures, big impacts
In April 2015, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal, with another just 17 days later. The scope of the disaster was almost unimaginable: more than 8,000 people died, tens of thousands were displaced, and entire communities were destroyed.
The Salvation Army International Emergency Services mobilised immediately, sending a team to the region within days, establishing camps in Kathmandu to distribute hygiene items, food and tarpaulins. As more supplies landed, teams distributed solar lamps, mosquito coils, ropes and thousands of kilos of food to more than 500 households in remote villages, as well as thousands of high-quality tents ahead of the monsoon season.
Once again, our presence, expertise and support offered desperately needed short and long-term relief. But, much more than that, with each small gesture of compassion, we bring enormous hope and positivity for the future.
