On April 25th 2015, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake rocked Nepal leaving many homeless. In the months following the quake, Portal worked with survivors to build durable shelters that keep families warm, dry, and safe from aftershocks. The Portal Shelter was designed in partnership with organizations and individuals across Nepal and the globe, we delivered over 5,000 shelters to those in need.
