You've done a lot during the pandemic
You have been building a house in Nepal!
As a MicroAid donor, throughout 2020, you have supported our work rebuilding a large two-family home for disaster survivors.
The original house was severely damaged in the 2015 earthquake, but the families had to keep living in the dangerous structure because they had nowhere else to go.
In the course of nine months, MicroAid took down the old house and built a new one, which will withstand future earthquakes and last for generations to come.
Even with two national lockdowns, weather damage to our exposed bricks walls, and corona virus on the work site, we persevered. Our project manager in Nepal, Nabina, did an awesome job keeping it going under all those challenging circumstances.
We even made the difficult, but ultimately humane, decision to keep paying our workers during the lockdowns.
Now, the beneficiary families can get back to self-sufficiency… and have a safe and comfortable place to live, raise their kids, and, if need be, lock down again.
As we head into the last quarter of the year, and you are making plans for charitable donations for tax (and humanitarian) reasons, please consider making another donation to MicroAid. We can’t do it without you.

We will continue to rebuild houses in Nepal, and will be starting projects for earthquake-survivor families in Mexico within the next few months. And rest assured, as always, 100 percent of your donation goes to bricks, mortar, and local labor, MicroAid overhead is paid by the board of directors. And if someone asks what you have been doing during the pandemic, you can say you built a house for a disaster-survivor family in Nepal. I hope you and your loved ones have been safe and healthy. Thank you, again. Regards,
