We are not a traditional disaster relief organization.

We Help Nepal is network of artists, business owners, doctors, teachers and development workers who have lived or are currently living in Nepal. We are united by our mutual connection to Nepal and our commitment to alternative development models.

Our expertise comes from our awareness of the Nepali social and political landscape, and our connections to local organizations that are beneath the international radar.

The recent earthquake was a natural disaster intensified by the man-made forces of rapid development, poverty, and conflict driven displacement. This fund will support immediate earthquake relief and rebuilding efforts rooted in a philosophy of relief to self-reliance, disaster to sustainable development.

We recognize that in this tragedy there are seeds of hope that will sprout from the rubble.
