First-aid Ongoing Needs Already deeply involved in a Cō-Impact Sourcing™ initiative in Nepal, dōTERRA immediately began contacting partners there to see what could be done. On April 28, the founders announced that dōTERRA would match all contributions to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ up to $500,000 through the month of May. Meanwhile, to help with immediate needs, the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation released $100,000 on May 1. These initial funds, along with additional funds from our partners on the ground, enabled thousands to receive much needed supplies. Packets with tarps, tents, blankets, and food soon arrived in some of the worst hit areas. Recognizing their need to keep education going, the Nepalese people most wanted help to rebuild schools that had been flattened in the quake. The people want to look forward to a brighter future, and emphasized the importance of having a school even before housing. To answer that need, temporary classrooms are held in large tents donated by the Healing Hands Foundation which have the added benefit of sheltering families at night. The response to the request for donations showed the overwhelming concern of people throughout the dōTERRA community. More than $317,000 was donated, making it possible for dōTERRA to present a combined donation of almost $636,000. These funds will be distributed through our partners such as CHOICE Humanitarian and others to fund targeted efforts to help the Nepalese people rebuild, especially in the districts of Lamjung and Dolakha. How You Can Donate to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation. Even as the country gets back on its feet, Nepal still faces challenging times.
