Nepal is a mountainous country in the middle of the Himalayas region with over 27 million people and is one of the poorest nations in the world. It was devastated by a massive earthquake in April of 2015. This terrible natural disaster destroyed many rural villages and parts of the capital of Kathmandu. Since the earthquake, the country has struggled to recover and has especially had issues with permanent infrastructure. While nearly 80% of the population has access to drinking water, most of it is not safe and only 27% of the population has access to basic sanitation. Aloha for People works to provide these people with access to clean drinking water and safe sanitation.

We have partnered with the non-profit organization Wine To Water to help provide water to the people of Nepal. Wine To Water focuses primarily on permanent water solutions and infrastructure in rural villages of Nepal. They work to build wells and community wide water systems to utilize ground water and educate the community on the importance of clean water and hygiene. We are extremely honored to partner with them and hope to provide many children in Nepal clean water access. You can learn more about Wine To Water’s work in Nepal at:
