Project HOPE has a long history of responding to disasters, including major earthquakes in Haiti, Japan, Indonesia, China and Armenia.
Project HOPE's history in Nepal includes the delivery of crucial medical care and health education to remote areas of Nepal during the U.S. Air Force humanitarian mission Pacific Angel (PACANGEL) in 2012.
21-year-old Pramila was pregnant with her second child and was anxious. Her first delivery was a fearful experience because she didn’t have the medical support she needed.
A year later, the work continues. Your support is now backing a two-year program for moms, babies and children still suffering in Nepal after the earthquake.
