THE STORY:

Lori & Erin spent time at the Disabled & Helpless Children's Home in Kathmandu, which is passionately & selflessly run by our good friend, Amrit Pudasainee.  While the children are safe, Amrit's village & home were destroyed by the earthquake (Tariphant Village near Aarughat, Gorkha, Nepal). Amrit is desperate to get food to his community. As we have been reading in the news, international aid is not getting to those who need it due to poor infrastructure. 

All of the money raised will go DIRECTLY to Amrit & he will buy the food in Kathmandu where he works & deliver it to his village.  Most people there are poor farmers, now jobless & homeless.  Storehouses of food were destroyed & the planted crops were severely damaged as rains poured down for days after the earthquake. 

Amrit has carefully calculated exactly what it will cost to get this community back on their feet for the next 3 months, until they will have a new harvest of food to continue their self-sustainable lifestyle. 

THREE MONTH FOOD SUPPLY for 35 families (around 175 people)

1. Rice: 35 x 9 bags (3 bags / mo) x 1500 Rupees = Rs 472,500 (US $4,630)
2. Lentils: 35 x 45 bags (1/2kg / day) x 140 Rupees = Rs 220,500 (US $2,160)
3. Salt: 35 x 15 bags (5kg / mo) x 20 Rupees = Rs 10,500 (US $102)
4. Cooking oil 35 x 15 liters (5 lit / mo) x 140 Rupees = Rs 73,500 (US $720)
5. Potatoes 35 x 90 kgs (30kg / mo) x 30 Rupees = Rs 94,500 (US $ 926)
   Total--------------------------- Rs 871,500 (US $ 8,538)

Any extra money will be used to buy much needed clothing and bedding: Rs 10,000 per family x 35 = Rs 350,000 (US $3,444)

Please help us! Even a little goes a long way in Nepal.
