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!

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,...

With all the disasters in the world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed—to feel that there are too many people to help.  Here at MicroAid, as you know, our philosophy is that just because we can’t help everyone, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t help someone.  I hope you know that, through your donations, you are building houses for disaster survivors right now...

Our fourth project in Nepal is complete!

This means, with our donors’ support, MicroAid has given another family—and generations to come—a safe, comfortable, permanent place to live. The Nakarmi family’s home was severely damaged and made unsafe to live in the 2015 earthquake.

We retrofitted and reinforced the interior walls and floors, and c...

Dear MicroAid Supporters:

I hope you are having a pleasant Valentines Day.

In Nepal, they just celebrated Shivarati—in honor of the god Shiva, one of the three main deities in Hinduism—which is also a love-fest.

I wanted to let you know, MicroAid is almost done with our fourth project in Nepal, another home repair/reconstruction for the Nakarmi family...

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to start the new year with another home repair in Bhaktapur, Nepal.  During the 2015 earthquake, the Nakarmi family’s roof caved in and some walls collapsed, making the entire house unsafe.

As you know, during the 2015 earthquake, 650,000 homes were destroyed or severely damaged.  And, even three years later,...
