On Christmas Day, a typhoon slammed into Eastern Samar in the Philippines—the same area where MicroAid built houses for families who survived Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.

Because electricity was knocked out for days, and the roads were blocked due to downed trees and other debris, we were unable to contact our people there—our beneficiary families, our a...

Someone said to me about MicroAid, “You’re not changing the world.”

I thought that was a funny thing to say, because, for the families we help, we ARE changing their world!

As we continue to repair and rebuild permanent homes for disaster-survivor families, they will have a safe and comfortable place to live for generations to come.

Thank you for supp...

Even four years after the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake destroyed 650,000 homes in Nepal, hundreds of thousands of families are still living in the rubble of their old houses.

But MicroAid has not forgotten, and with donor support, we continue to rebuild and repair and retrofit destroyed and damaged homes in the Kathmandu Valley.

Not only has our work put f...

When a natural disaster strikes somewhere in the world, like the recent hurricane in the Bahamas, people often ask, “What can I do to help?”

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, another earthquake-survivor family in Nepal has a permanent, comfortable home.

MicroAid just finished rebuilding a house in the Kathmandu Valley for the Kayastha family, whose original home was damaged beyond repair in the 2015 earthquake. Even though the dangerous, rickety structure could have collapsed...

If you support MicroAid, your donations have paid for the bricks and mortar and local labor for the permanent house we are building for another earthquake-survivor family in Bhaktapur, Nepal. We’re almost done—here it is:

As you recall, our engineer felt that the family’s home, which was damaged in the 2015 earthquake, was too dangerous to live in,...

Hello MicroAid supporters:

I hope all is well.

Last month, a dear friend got an assignment to interview me for the “LightWorkers” website. The article was specifically about how individual people can make a difference in the world.  


Since I started MicroAid many years ago, w...

MicroAid is doing great—we’re building more homes for disaster-survivor families than ever, and we’re getting good press and attention. (Jon’s recent interview here: https://barcrawlradio657268108.wpcomstaging.com/2019/04/05/bcr-36-microaid-internationals-jon-ross/)

Following our successful project in Paraguay, your donations have enabled us to star...

Recently, BarCrawl Radio in New York City interviewed me about MicroAid for their podcast.

If you have ever wondered how I came to create MicroAid and why we do what we do, this will answer some questions. Most of you know the stories, but you may find new ones amusing.

We just finished the house for our flood-survivor family. It came out beautifully—but took a bit longer than expected. 

I ran into some problems in mid-December: The contractor I hired, and who I had really gotten to like, turned out to be dishonest and a thief.  

About halfway through construction he started diverting resources, materials, and manpo...
