A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on April 25th 2015, shaking the core of the capital, Kathmandu and many cities surrounding it. There have been more than a 100 aftershocks making the situation even worse. Historic temples and buildings of Nepal are now down to rubbles.
My family along with in-numerous other people have been left to live in the streets or open field due to the uncertainty of what is next and which house might give out and fall on them. It has been extremely difficult to sit here in the U.S. And watch everyone suffer back home. However we aren't giving up and neither is my family. My family has selflessly given to social service all their lives and even after such heart wrenching calamity they want to give to the ones much more needy than them. As my brother-in-law said “Yesterday we were scared, today we are strong”. My family in Nepal has set out on a mission to not be afraid anymore because there are people who are in desperate need of help - People who need food, water and a shelter.
$1 = Rs. 99, the smallest of donation will go a long way in Nepal.
The money raised here will be used to donate supplies to people who are directly affected by the earthquake.
The money will be directed to Mr. Rabindra Prasad Giri, former President of Nepal Dashnami Samaj a non-profit organization focused on the upliftment of Nepalese, he is able to direct the funds in the most effective way. Updates will also be provided through the Facebook page of Khagendra Prasad Giri (https://www.facebook.com/nepalikhagendra.giri/media_set?set=a.946541368723854&type=1).
