It's been three months since a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal and caused devastating damage across the country, from its capital to the lush hills of the countryside. Our team is still on the ground helping people begin their long-term recovery.

Thanks to 100+ staff and 51,395 generous donors, we've reached more than 68,000 people in Nepal with emergency relief. Learn more: http://ow.ly/QcBr2
Monsoon season has arrived, and the people of Nepal are working to rebuild their homes, communities and livelihoods. We're still on the ground helping people affected by the earthquake with emergency supplies and cash assistance.

People in Nepal are beginning to recover, but they still need our help. That’s why our team in Nepal is working hard every day to reach families with supplies. As they help people in cities, towns and villages, they are seeing the strength and resilience of people in Nepal first-hand. Meet just a few of the people you’ve helped us reach: http://ow.ly/NPJxH

Under the hot desert sun, the summer conditions for Syrian refugees at Zaatari camp are nearly unbearable. Dust storms are frequent, and the metal caravans many refugees live in bake in the scorching heat. There is rarely enough water to go around.

Hear from refugees at the camp about their experiences, learn more about water scarcity in Jordan, and find out how you can help: http://ow.ly/Q35Ax

When Daad and her family fled Syria for the safety of tiny Lebanon, they didn't know where they would go, or how they would survive. Like many Syrian refugees there, they now call a makeshift tent home.

But getting enough food and clean water is still a daily struggle for Daad, her husband, and their young children. We're helping families like theirs by providing clean water, new latrines, and hygiene kits. Learn more: http://ow.ly/PFbCR
For refugee families like Daad’s in Lebanon, even the basics are hard to come by. They need better shelter, more food, and perhaps most importantly this summer: clean water.

What’s it like to do humanitarian work in a conflict zone?

Two of our team members report from war-torn Yemen, where constant shelling, bombing, electricity outages and water shortages are just a few of the obstacles they face in trying to reach families in need: http://ow.ly/Pm7fG

Photo of the day: Yasmeen dances outside her new home in Jordan — her family fled there after the violence in Syria became too much to bear. Refugees like Yasmeen struggle with their new neighbors over limited resources like school, jobs and housing. With your support, we’re bringing Syrians and Jordanians together to work together on community projects like new playgrounds and classrooms that solve these problems and create a safe environment for all.
