On April 25th, a massive earthquake (7.9 Richter scale) hit Nepal, leading to more than 7000 deaths (and counting) and destruction of much of Kathmandu and the surrounding areas. The earthquake was the biggest in the region in 80 years and has also left 10,900 injured, and over 500,000 people homeless.
While there are many relief efforts underway, we believe that smaller campaigns targeting specific disaster zones help in bringing relief more efficiently. Funds collected here will go towards providing immediate relief (shelter/ food) and rebuilding homes for victims in Tekanpur (small village, 20 miles outskirts of the capital) and sindhupalchok area. These people have been living in temporary shelters (tents/tarps) since the day disaster struck.
