Our History

The April 2015 earthquake in Nepal that took the lives of thousands, stirred the Nepali community in San Antonio to come together and pray for our nation. About 200 Nepalese congregated at a candle light vigil at the Alamo Mission in downtown San Antonio to pray for the lives that were lost, for the strength of the survivors, and for the recovery of a nation that had been demolished to rubbles.

After this initial assembly, we felt that just prayers were not enough – we felt a strong need to do something so we could assist in the recovery of Nepal. With this goal, we went on to form a formal association in May 2015 under the leadership of Mr. Nishant Hada – and SANA was born.
