After the massive 7.8 earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015, which killed nearly 8,000 people and destroyed 300,000 dwellings, people need to start rebuilding. There is an urgent need to provide emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets, as well as restore lost livelihoods and rebuilding of houses with earthquake resistant technology. ICA is working with our longtime partner, People’s Science Institute (PSI) who is in Nepal on the field: http://www.psi.org/country/nepal/#about

HelpAge India is a leading charity in India working with and for disadvantaged elderly for more than 3 decades. It was set up in 1978 with a focus to improve the quality of life of destitute elders primarily in the rural areas through its welfare projects by providing free rations, free medical screening, free medicines, and conduct free cataract surgeries.
It slowly spread its wings and started focusing on long term sustainability options for these elders through various livelihood projects and helping them form Elder Self-Help Groups, which today span across India.
HelpAge India aims at helping elders rebuild their own lives and take charge of their own future, restoring within them a sense of self worth and confidence.
