Relief Efforts by our Partners Continue In Nepal

(Last Updated On: November 11, 2021)

Our Partner staff in Nepal have been working consistently to ensure families and children within the communities we work in remain safe and supported. This includes the continued provision of food relief, protective equipment, hygiene supplies, as well as mental and emotional support. This has been particularly crucial in remote villages where access to healthcare and basic necessities remain a challenge.

One part writer, one part photographer & two parts traveller… Three years ago I decided something needed to change, so I quit my corporate job and started working for Asian Aid from my home in India. I travel to projects and schools we support in India and Nepal, bringing you their stories through words, photos and video. Since then I have been visiting Asian Aid projects with my camera and notebook in tow, to bring pictures and stories from the field to you.
