Join hands to rebuild Nepal

Nepal Earthquake

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

Please donate generously. Go to donate page. Choose Nepal Earthquake Relief in the project drop down menu. 100% of your donation will go directly to the rehabilitation process, and ICA will match your donations up to $10K and ensure that funds provide immediate and needed assistance.





Featured Project

HelpAge India

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.
