About NERF International
On 25 April 2015 at 11:56 am, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal. More than 8,800 people were killed, and more than 23,000 were injured. This was the worst natural disaster to hit Nepal in almost 100 years. The devastation was wide-reaching, and full recovery is a long and ongoing process. Political issues, corruption, lack of resources and conflicts continue to strain communities that have suffered so much already.
NERF International originally came into being in response to this earthquake, and our earliest projects were focused on immediate disaster relief – emergency aid, food, and reconstruction materials.
In the intervening years, our mission has evolved to now focus on the long-term empowerment and development of Nepal, with the aim to produce a stable, sustainable and equitable improvement in the standard of living for all Nepalis.
