What HAT Stands For
For most New Zealanders there is a sense of connection with Nepal.
This is through history, mountains, earthquakes, personal connections or himalayan trekking.
HAT seeks to help people in New Zealand understand and support the poor and disadvantaged in Nepal.
We work in the areas of health, community development and relief work particularly among remote communities and the most disadvantaged. What is important to us:
We appreciate the support and work of the Humanitarian Aid Trust from New Zealand and the way it promotes the needs of people in Nepal.

Often life makes more sense when we give something of ourselves to others who have so much less than us, but at the same time we also benefit from the connection

Can I get involved in the work of HAT in Nepal?
We encourage people to not only give financially but also to give of their time and energy through visitation, service, promotion and prayer.
"HAT is a very helpful organisation that endeavours to assist Nepali people through partnering with national people. These underprivileged people receive assistance by for example equipment organised by HAT. I would certainly recommend its work”
Dr Neil Pollock
"I have been involved with the activities of Humanitarian Aid Trust and International Nepal Fellowship both in Nepal and New Zealand for 32 years. It is an organisation that demonstrates how much can be done when working in partnership with nationals and focusing on the most needy and marginalised. I have no hesitation in recommending its work."
