SIM has launched a response to the devastating Nepal earthquake disaster. SIM Nepal personnel are working with other agencies to provide a coordinated response. This includes provision of food, clean water, shelter, medical services, transport and counselling.

SIM is very grateful for offers of individual support that have come from around the world. At this time, we have adequate personnel locally to handle immediate relief efforts.

You may help the victims of this disaster by donating to SIM's Disaster Relief Fund #88600. SIM provides assistance to all people, regardless of gender, race or religion.
