Two devastating earthquakes in Nepal have claimed more than 8,000 lives and destroyed countless homes. Many of the country's historic sites have been severely damaged, including temples and monuments. Kathmandu reportedly shifted 3 m (10 ft) to the south in just 30 seconds. Between 700 and 1,000+ people were on or beside Mount Everest when the earthquake struck. The earthquake triggered several large avalanches on and around the mountain resulting in severe casualities there as well.
INA would like to offer their heartfelt condolences to all Nepalese living in Nepal and abroad. INA has been working tirelessly in raising funds from generous donors to extend helping hands for the relief and rehabilitation in the affected regions.
As steps for immediate relief, INA have collaborated with CNI and MaHa Sanchar to provide relief materials (food, water and shelter) to most affected areas and also has participated in long term rehabilitation programs for those affected through the earthquake.

Our releif team is handling the collection and dispatch of the relief materials through close coordination with "Central Relief and Supply Management Committee" under the Chairmanship of Minister, Ministry of Commerce and Supplies of Government of Nepal.
