With a special focus to serve the immediate and intermediate needs of victims of natural disaster and reduce human sufferings, MITRA Samaj designs and operates humanitarian response programs by immediately partnering with national/international aid agencies and individuals. Structured with experienced professionals, MITRA Samaj implements on-the-ground relief efforts either by approaching for external solicitation of aid or endows its own investments or capital.

Following the powerful earthquake of April 25, 2015 that measured 7.6 magnitude on the Richter scale, MITRA Samaj significantly contributed to the implementation of on-the-ground relief efforts after raising emergency funds, where immediate responses such as shelters, clothes, pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, building materials, food and water, were immediately supplied to the populations of worst-hit regions, including Kavrepalanchowk, Sindhupalchowk, Dolakha, Nuwakot, Gorkha and Rasuwa.
While relief operations had been the topmost priority of MITRA Samaj, it had intervened in rebuilding responses through lobbying with prospective donors and implementing rebuilding programs. For this, MITRA Samaj responded in distributing aid, including stationery and rebuilding materials to community schools and its students.
Furthermore, MITRA Samaj had remained active in undertaking immediate and intermediate relief assessment in the disaster-hit regions in order to obtain evidence-based needs and contribute in bridging emergency relief and long-term development plans by devising short and long term plans of relief efforts.
