On 25 April a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. Over 8000 have been confirmed dead and many have been left homeless. Major cities, including the capital Kathmandu, are badly damaged and rural areas have been cut off by avalanches. Aftershocks continue to shake the region and the majority of the population have fled their homes for makeshift shelters.
Landell Mills is currently managing two Asian Development Bank funded projects in Nepal. The first focuses on improving water security and resilience to climate change impact in the Bagmati River Basin. The second is exploring the use of biochar as part of an ecosystems approach for rural sustainable growth. Thankfully none of our Nepal team or their family members were injured in the earthquake.
Landell Mills is donating $1000 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) which is working to provide, shelter, food and clean water in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake. In the long term DEC will work with both individuals and communities to help them rebuild their lives.
