Tents to Nepal is a fast growing grassroot venture aimed at providing immediate relief to the most affected villages (where 90% of the houses have been flattened) by providing tents and other critical supplies. There are over a million families who have been left without a roof just before Monsoon season.
Our efforts are supported and coordinated on the ground by the generous hearts of our sister company Organic India (wellness company - India), Ramana's Garden (orphanage in Rishikesh - India),and ABARI (Nepalese design and construction firm). In less than one week, the first load of tents have been shipped to Gorkha (epicenter of the quake), a tent production facility has been setup in Kanpur (Northern India) and everyone is working hard on to ship 6 more tons of tents and supplies.
Also, the ABARI team was the first aid team this week to reach Dwaha, a devastated village in Gorkha. They are already working on building shelters to a number of families with bamboo and canvas tents.
Timing is of the essence, as every hour of every day counts. The sooner we can buy canvas, the sooner we will be able to give a roof to a family.
Thank you all for your limitless generosity. None of this would have been possible without you!
PS: 100% of the funds will be used to buy canvas/supplies and shipping tents to Nepal. Friends of Ramana's Garden is a non profit 501c.
