Good Neighbors was the first international NGO to send an emergency response team to the Gorkha district, the epicenter of the April 25th earthquake. On April 28th, we distributed our first round of emergency relief kits to a village called Phinam, making us the first NGO to provide relief in this area. Over the weekend, we completed our second and third rounds of distribution, providing assistance to a total of 1,146 families. Below is a recap of our relief efforts inside Gorkha during the critical first week following the earthquake.
