Support Mothers in Nepal Quake

Organized by: Jan Brunson

THE STORY:

The April 25th earthquake in Nepal devastated a large region of the country. Many international and local organizations are already involved in emergency relief efforts. This particular project aims to support some of the most vulnerable (yet strong!) members of society, pregnant women and mothers of infants, as they begin to rebuild their lives. I have over 10 years of experience in a community on the northern rim of the Kathmandu Valley as a researcher of the social determinants of women's health. I am a scholar and a professor of cultural anthropology, not someone typically involved in social work or humanitarian efforts. But because the people of this community hold a special place in my heart, I feel I must try to support them in this time of dire need. This community, Budhanilkantha, is no more deserving of your support than any other community in Nepal, but it is also no less deserving. And because of my personal and professional long-term connection to this place, I can promise that donations will directly assist pregnant women and new mothers and their families as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Thank you for considering donating - even the smallest amount will be appreciated. Namaste.
