Nepal is a landlocked nation with a current population of over 27 million people. As reported by the World Bank, Nepal is one of the poorest nations in the world with an estimated GDP per capita of US$470. With a staggering 42 percent of the population living below the poverty line and only 27 percent with improved access to sanitation, there are quite a number of issues facing Nepal. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 2015 exposed many of Nepal’s problems and forced the world to address the significant problems associated to water pollution and water scarcity.
Wristsponsible is working with the Helping Hands Hospital and H2OpenDoors to help rebuild Nepal after the devastating earthquake in 2015. We have implemented three decentralized water treatment systems and distribution systems for communities across Nepal.
A devastating 7.8 earthquake hit the center of Nepal in April 2015, killing more than 9,000 people and leaving much of the country in shambles. With our partners, we supplied water treatment systems and water pumps to help rebuild critical infrastructure for impacted areas. Specifically, we implemented a complete water system at the Helping Hands Hospital, which takes in an average of 250,000 patients per year. This video showcases the scope of the project and the impact
