Tents Provide Temporary Shelter in the Aftermath of Nepal’s Deadly Earthquake

Funding BBF Global Relief helped provide 50 tents to families displaced by Nepal’s deadly earthquake in November 2023.

BBF Global Relief provided a grant to Himalayan Health Care in response to the 6.4-magnitude earthquake that struck Jajarkot, Nepal on November 3, 2023. The disaster killed over 150 people and damaged or destroyed more than 50,000 structures.

Himalayan Health Care (HHC) partnered with Mr. Rajiv Bikram Shah, the elected member of Parliament from Jajarkot, and his team to carry out a response to the earthquake. Funding from BBF helped HHC distribute 50 family-size tents with waterproof ground sheets, 150 tarps, and 150 blankets to families, schools, and health institutions.

The tents provide makeshift shelter to 179 people displaced by the disaster. They also helped 2,500 students resume their studies by providing 15 schools with makeshift classrooms and teacher offices. Two tents established makeshift clinics in village health posts that treated hundreds of patients.
