As you’ve likely seen, there was a devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th, killing more than 1,800 people.
Never Settle partner, Splash, has 131 water projects serving 96,148 children in Kathmandu, Nepal. Only hours after the earthquake hit and tremors were still being felt, Splash worked diligently to make sure all Splash staff and their families were accounted for and safe. We can happily say that everyone on the Splash team in-country has been successfully contacted.
Please know that the situation in Kathmandu is devastating. The city is in shambles. And clean water – already a critical need – is even harder for people to secure now. Please keep the Splash team in Nepal close in your thoughts and prayers, as they endeavor both to tend to their own lives and families but also as they work to secure clean water for kids who desperately need it.
Our hearts also go out to the thousands of families affected by this catastrophe, including Dan Fredinburg. Dan was a longtime Googler who headed privacy for Google X. He died April 25, 2015 of a head injury after the 7.9 magnitude earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest.
If you’d like to help in the wake of the tragedy, you can contribute to disaster relief or to ensure residents continue to receive clean water
We will deliver updates as they come.
