Money for...'Camp Hope' to help rebuild nepal

Thousands of displaced people from Nepal's remote mountain areas still reside in Kathmandu camps such as Camp Hope.

Camp Hope set up a fund with an aim to rebuild the 5 villages from Sindhupalchowk. The fund is being used to source the necessary infrastructure to build houses and social infrastructure capable of withstanding a similar event. As well as this Camp Hope’s funds have been going towards to training the villagers, providing them with the skills to rebuild their own villages, but also the ability to help others and earn an income at the same time. 

The land where these villages previously existed has been structurally compromised: there are deep cracks in the earth which during the monsoon have filled with water which are likely to cause catastrophic landslides. Slopes destabilised by the series of earthquakes & recurring aftershocks are at much greater risk of slope failure now that they have been saturated but the monsoon rains. The time frame for safe resettlement or relocation to alternative sites is highly uncertain. Construction and resettlement has not been feasible until now.

More info on our website.

Why We're Involved

As many of you will know, Milla and Will were travelling in Nepal at the time when the earthquake hit and saw the damage that it caused first hand. Having joined together with Rachel, who also has a long-standing relationship with Nepal, the three of us decided to organise this fund-raising event to celebrate the rebuilding of this beautiful country that we and many others have fallen in love with.
