The earthquake

After a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25, killing thousands and causing massive destruction, our team on the ground immediately took action to help people in need.

Thanks to our 100+ staff in Nepal and support from more than 44,000 donors, we have been able to deliver emergency supply kits to some of the hardest-hit areas across the country in the last month.

Drinking tea is a relaxing ritual all around the world, but for people growing the ingredients, life can be challenging. Seasonal crops only provide income to families for part of the year, and during the off-season they often struggle to put food on the table or send their children to school.

For more than ten years, we’ve worked with Tazo Tea to support more than 84,000 people in India and Guatemala who grow tea ingredients for a living. Together, we are helping families build better lives and transform their communities for good.

In Chapagaon, a small village less than 10 miles south of Kathmandu, families are sleeping outside in the rain after the recent earthquake destroyed or severely damaged their homes. Many of those with homes left standing would rather stay outdoors than risk entering a building that could now be prone to collapse.

Some families are sheltering in thin tents, while others are seeking refuge in the basic shelters on a nearby mushroom farm. Our team on the ground was able to reach the village and distribute much-needed emergency supplies.
