Imagine how difficult your life would be if, for the next four years, you had very limited access to safe and clean water. If you lived in rural Homs, you wouldn’t need to imagine it. That’s what they have been dealing with since 2013.

report Medair

Hot, dry air blows in our faces as soon as the door of the plane opens. We’ve just landed on a small airstrip in an area where famine was recently declared by the UN.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, 24 April 2017 - On 25 April 2015, a massive earthquake in Ghorka, Nepal, followed by another devastating one on 12 May, killed nearly 9,000 people and injured over 21,000. More than 600,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. Medair's emergency team arrived within 48 hours and distributed shelter kits to 10,135 families. Since then, Medair has supported thousands of other Nepalese through various shelter projects, alongside Integral Alliance partner Mission East.
