Blankets for Kids in Nepal
Organized by: David Urmann
The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 9000 people, more than 23000 got injured, hundreds went missing, thousands displaced. These figures increased with another devastating aftershock. The displaced are in dire need of blankets and warmth. I have been working on this area for past two years and would like to distribute 5000 blankets at the affected areas. I am an actress and a mountaineer from Nepal and climbed Mt Everest on 21st may 2013. I am going to climb Kilimanjaro (5895m above sea level) this October and intend to raise money to buy and distribute blankets to the areas affected by cold wave in Nepal. Children and elderly are most affected by the cold wave leading to more than 20 deaths every year. My trip is already sponsored, so every penny donated will go to the victims.
