One year after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, causing massive loss of life, widespread homelessness and billions of dollars in damage, the nation continues to heal and rebuild. In Dhading, one of the districts most devastated by the quake, SIM and partner organization United Mission to Nepal (UMN) carry on with reconstruction work.
With significant financial aid from SIM and other agencies, United Mission to Nepal (UMN) has managed to distribute relief goods to 9,674 families badly affected by April’s earthquake and strong aftershocks in Nepal.

But relief efforts are restricted to helicopter drops in more populated areas. Many from outlying villages continue to risk their lives walking treacherous paths to collect relief supplies.
Daily life is returning to "normal" in Nepal, after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday, April 25, sent the country into a state of emergency. SIM personnel prepare to give aid to those most affected.
