Bringing Smiles to Nepal

When the second earthquake hit Nepal in May, damage caused by April’s earthquake was compounded.

Structures already compromised in April were damaged further, making rebuilding and retrofitting them to withstand future earthquakes even more urgent.

The Host School in Nepal houses classrooms, medical clinic and our dental clinic. This building is one of four at the Sri Mangal Dvip (SMD) school. It requires an immense amount of repair to withstand future tremors.

Until this work is done, children learn and live outside.

As a SmileTree Branch Office, we are pleased to share with you our answer to this urgent need.

SmileTree supports oral care and education in Nepal, and has issued a Challenge Grant of $20,000 to help cover repairs to its clinics.

Thanks to our fellow Americans, the Challenge was answered in less than two days.
