After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, Khalsa Aid teams were quick on the ground.

The UK-based humanitarian relief agency had set up Langar, or free community kitchen, in Kathmandu which provided food for some 3,000 to 4,000 people daily. Then, its teams initiated building semi-permanent shelters in the rural villages.

“Khalsa Aid built 1,200 shelters outside Kathmandu and we are currently rebuilding a school. Thank you for your support,” it said in an update today on its Facebook.
