THE STORY:

About the Nepal Earthquake

On Saturday, April 25, a massive earthquake of magnitude 7.8 devastated our home country, Nepal. This is the biggest earthquake to have hit our nation in 80 years and as of Wednesday evening, Nepal's National Emergency Coordination Center has reported 5,238 confirmed deaths and 10,348 badly injured. Millions of Nepali people have been directly affected by the earthquake and the UN predicts that 1.4 million of them need immediate assistance. Many have been displaced- thousands of people now live in temporary camps, in squalid conditions with limited access to food and water. Many of our favorite Kathmandu spots now are in a pile.

The hardest hit areas are outside of the capital. The true scale of the disaster remains to be uncovered as most of the affected villages outside of Kathmandu are accessible only by foot. Reports are slowly coming in and it is not good- some villages have been entirely reduced to rubble

Local, national and international efforts are underway on the ground but Nepal needs more help! The UN reports that we need 415 million to provide life saving protection and assistance in the next three months!

We need your support

Our goal is to fund local NGOs who have the maximal capability to help those affected by the earthquake. We would also like to support relief efforts focused at the remote areas of Nepal.

Our team members are in touch with other similar minded  fundraising and relief coordinating teams on the ground who will guide us towards organizations who have funding needs and a proven track record of credibility. Many of our classmates and high school alumni (who are from all over Nepal) are themselves initiating and leading relief efforts and they too need your financial support.

Cash can be of more help than goods

While relief efforts on the ground are in need of  a variety of supplies including food, tents, water, and medicine, sending these goods directly to Nepal is a logistical nightmare. Nepal’s only international airport is in Kathmandu and reports have been pouring in about shipments that have been slow to pass customs clearance. Many roads that maneuver the challenging landscape of the country have also been badly damaged. Your dollars will have more impact in helping Nepal.

The Team 

Teammembers Karuna, Pinki, Shivani and Shringkhala have been classmates since 1996. They were born and raised in Nepal and are currently working/ studying in US- Mayo Clinic (Karuna, Pinki), U of Florida (Shivani) and U of Rochester, NY (Shringkhala).
