ASIA Onlus – SOS Himalayan Children

Let’s Secure Their Future

In the Himalayan countries where ASIA is working, the conditions of extreme poverty in which most of society lives make the lives of the youngest children very difficult. 

Right now, children in Jajarkot and Rukum West, remote northwestern areas of Nepal, are experiencing a real emergency.

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake on November 3 struck these regions, killing 157 people, injuring 349 and destroying 17,792 homes and 300 schools. Tens of thousands of people have lost their homes and are in need of safe shelter from the weather and frost of the Himalayan winter.

ASIA Nepal’s team reached out to some of the most remote villages in the earthquake-affected areas – Shirpachaur, Bayalatole and Balachaur, located at an altitude between 1,800 and 2,200 meters – to assess the damage sustained by the people and determine their most urgent needs, and immediately realized that in this situation children are, unfortunately, doubly victimized. Not only have they lost their homes, schools and all forms of security, but they are exposed to serious dangers, such as child trafficking and prostitution, amplified by the confusion and emergency. 

Therefore, in addition to the distribution of temporary shelters for families in the most remote and inaccessible villages, we are organizing the setting up of temporary schools where children can start classes again and be safe and secure.

With the SOS HIMALAYAN CHILDREN campaign, we want to offer education and protection to as many Himalayan children as possible, who are totally ignored by the international spotlight, in order to ensure their safety and dignity.

YOU TOO, CAN JOIN THE CAMPAIGN

  • offer education to children in Jajarkot and Rukum West and help build a temporary school
  • donate a roof to an entire family and help them get through the freezing Himalayan winter, participate in the construction of a temporary shelter.
