THE STORY:

Prabal Gurung wrote -

Thousands of people have been killed by a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015. There is widespread devastation across Nepal. The death toll, now over 4,600, continues to rise as search and rescue efforts are underway in Kathmandu and across the country. There is no way to accurately guess how many are in need throughout the other cities and hundreds of villages at this time. We have been hearing that villages - especially those closest to the epicenter - have been the most devastated. Some initial reports suggest that many villages have been totally flattened by the quake. There have been dozens of tremors and aftershocks since the first earthquake, further destabilizing structures and complicating rescue efforts.

The immediate need on the ground is for medical support, search and rescue, emergency shelters and food and water among many other things. As the days, weeks and months go by and after the humanitarian needs are addressed, Nepal will need to begin the healing and rebuilding process. The magnitude of the damage is still being assessed, but hundreds of buildings have collapsed including many homes and many of Nepal’s ancient and iconic temples and monuments.

Your donations will go through my organization, Shikshya Foundation Nepal (www.shikshyafoundationnepal.org), and we will distribute 100% of the funds accordingly, based on the latest needs on the ground. Please donate generously and spread the word. We will continue to provide updates and information regarding the allocation of funds. Thank you all for your support.
