Rebuilding homes step by step


When the earthquakes struck in 2015, the impact on our Gurkha veterans and their families was devastating.

Much of the worst damage was sustained in remote Himalayan foothills, where many of our pensioners live. In total, over 1,700 of their homes were damaged or destroyed.

Since then, our team in Nepal has worked tirelessly to repair and rebuild houses damaged in the quakes.

Step-by-step guide

Below, we’ve put together a guide outlining how our Gurkha homes are built to an earthquake resistant standard.
