Earthquake Victim Relief Fund for the Community of Nepal
Organized by: Mitha KC
On April 25, 2015, at 11:55 am, a massive earthquake hit Nepal with a Richter scale of 7.8. Within seconds, the lives of millions of people were changed forever, with over 7,000 dead and 17, 000 thousands more injured along with 8 million affected so far. The toll of missing and dead continues to rise.
Many of us Nepalese living abroad have being trying to be in touch and be available emotionally to our families, relatives, friends and our community every day since we heard this tragic news. The aftershocks continue, and the scope of this tragedy is only beginning to be measured.
Thousands of our innocent children, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters’ lives—and countless property damage, including to ancient monuments and temples—were damaged or destroyed in an instant. Our entire Nepalese people and community is out in the street for shelter, in pouring rain, lightning and thunder, unable to go to back into whatever is left of their homes.
I personally learned that we have lost our family house, where my whole family used to live, and my uncle and aunt lost their lives in their house when it collapsed on them.
So, after realizing the extent of the damage and learning the painful plight of the Nepalese people, I came to a decision to reach out to our friends and acquaintances and appeal to their generosity by asking for help at this critical moment.
Your donation will make a big difference right now for those people out there who have lost their families, friends, relatives and their homes.
As a Nepalese living in Minnesota for many years, I want to help my Nepalese community and build a bridge of help directly to my people. Even though I am far away from my home country, I will help bring your generosity directly to the peoples’ lives who are most in need.
My goal is to send the donated money directly to the community of people so they can make use of each and every donation that will be properly used for food, clothing, shelter and medicine that they desperately need to survive.
