National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI), StreetNet Affiliate and Focal Point for Asia reacted immediately as soon as they heard about the plight of Nepal, when the devastating earthquake struck on 25 April 2015. NASVI sent an appeal letter around the world for humanitarian aid to assist the affected Nepalese people.

On 17 May 2015, a truck loaded with essential supplies for more than 131 families set off on a two-day journey from Patna to Nepal.

For the injured and other earthquake-affected people in Nepal, NASVI in partnership with NIDAN and StreetNet international had sent one truck full of relief food including rice, salt, oil and pulses.

"We appreciate the quick response of our partners, coming to the aid of earthquake stricken Nepal," said Arbind Singh National Coordinator for NASVI. "The relief goods will be handed over to the Nepal Street Vendors Union (NEST) who are working hard to provide urgent help to the most vulnerable people impacted in Nepal.

The Nepal Earthquake has caused thousands of people to be displaced and injured with many sadly losing their lives. Assistance will be needed for months to come.
