This project delivered shelter assistance to 2,600 vulnerable households in Gorkha, Dolakha and Sindhupalchok, three of the hardest hit districts by the 2015 Nepal Earthquake. Aid included distribution of toolkits and sheets of Corrugated Galvanized Iron (CGI), which allowed residents to create basic shelters using what could be salvaged from their homes. The program in Dolakha and Sindhupalchok districts was coordinated by ANSAB Nepal, which provided shelter support to 1,915 households.
