Since the start of the foundation projects, there has always been a need for support, for example after the earthquake in 2015, the corona pandemic or local disasters.
The HUMAN Foundation is not able to provide nationwide assistance in the event of major natural disasters. But at the local level there is definitely the opportunity to provide selective help. We would like to briefly present these special projects here.
Food supply during Covid-19
In 2021 there were increased cases of illness in Upper Dolpo and the borders with China were closed due to the Covid lockdown. As a result, no trade was possible. For many families there was not enough food. In cooperation with several organizations from different countries, we sent medicine and food to different districts in the Dolpo. A total of 755 families could be cared for.
A detailed report on the project can be found here.
Landslides and flood in Mughu
In autumn 2022 – during our trip to Upper Dolpo – there were landslides in various districts of Nepal, an early and severe onset of winter and flooding. Some villages in the Mughu district were particularly hard hit. More than 60 people died and many houses were destroyed. We help with food, corrugated iron for emergency shelters, clothing, blankets and water. About 300 families are affected.

Quotes from important Projectpartners
Whatever we do should be aimed at the well-being of others and at doing something that really improves their situation.
I never had the opportunity to go to school. This is precisely why it is so important to me that children today have good opportunities for education in the villages in Upper Dolpo.
It was August 16, 2021 that changed our life, which had been so happy until then, so dramatically.
Alexander’s life, which has been so eventful so far with many social contacts and professional success, ended so tragically when he died unexpectedly at the age of 41 from a pulmonary embolism.
Since Alexander spent two semesters abroad in Seoul during his studies, he used the semester breaks to backpack through China, Japan and, above all, Tibet, which fascinated him so much because of the mentality of the inhabitants and the beauty of nature. Now his big dream, which he wanted to realize in autumn, was to travel to Nepal. Since we were always informed about the projects of the HUMAN FOUNDATION through Edith and Karlheinz, we knew that the foundation also builds and runs schools in Nepal.
Helping to fund a school in Lhuri and the thought that this will give children the opportunity to have a better future through education helps us greatly to ease the grief of our only and dearly loved son. We know that this is absolutely in the spirit of our Alexander.
We would like to thank Edith and Karlheinz very much for their incredibly admirable commitment to supporting people in poverty and need.
