A little more than a month since the 7.8 Richter scale earthquake shook Nepal leaving more than 8.500 dead, tens of thousands injured and over one hundred thousand displaced, the nation must brace for its next challenge – monsoon season.

To respond to this critical need, #RiseNepal, a volunteer effort supported by the Global Peace Foundation and other members of the Asia Pacific Peace and Development Service Alliance, has launched the “Shelter of Hope” campaign to build 1,000 transitional shelters in remote areas.
