5 YEARS OF PEOPLE IN NEED
On this day five years ago, People in Need arrived in Nepal, ready to help those impacted by the worst earthquake to hit the country in 80 years. Check out our new microsite to learn what we’ve been doing in the country since then.
People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit, international organization founded in the Czech Republic in 1992. PIN arrived in Nepal as part of a humanitarian response to the April 25th, 2015 earthquake. Since its inception in Nepal, PIN has had a strong role in advocating and addressing the needs of marginalized populations. This includes people who live in geographically remote areas of Nepal, people who are from historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity (women and girls).
