Gifts of Love
Organized by: Nepal Earthquake Relief
Ven. Charok Lama Sherpa is a lama at the Kopan Monastery. I met Charok in 2012. He was only 19, but he is one of the most compassionate and wise beings I've ever met. While larger aid charities have had difficulty accessing the hardest hit rural areas, he is directly aiding Nepal Earthquake Relief efforts with a focus on Solukumbu region and other hard to reach villages. This is a volunteer-based project, with no staff, travel or other administrative costs; all funds received will go directly to the people impacted by the earthquake. The fiscal sponsor is Silent Thunder Order Sangha and your donations are 100% tax deductible.
“My Dear friends and Family around the world, As all of you have heard of the devastating news in Nepal, i thank you all for your kind prayers for those lives lost in the disaster, Main City in Kathmandu has been receiving lots of voluntary help from nations around the world, we thank all of them for their all their help and support as well.
But in the rural areas of Solukumbu, lots of houses have been destroyed, people have died and for those still alive living there its extremely hard because of the lack of transportation and the one they have have been destroyed, food shortage is sure to be there within two to three days, and nights are harder because of the weather there, scared to enter their houses most of them spend the last two nights in the chilling cold and most people living there are elders, they are also most of the time cut from contact from the other places.
For the first time i would like to request anyone, friends, families and sponsors to help us fundraise for the people in solukumbu to provide them with tents, medical, food and clothing and any other necessary support…”
After the immediate relief efforts, our vision is to help rebuild many of the thousands of houses that have been destroyed by the earthquake, and we have set a conservative monetary goal of $500 for each house. Please support Nepal by asking your contacts as well as donating whatever you can.
Why am I volunteering for this project? The imminent suffering and the generous spirit of the people in Nepal. Some of you know what I mean; and if not, I hope you will someday!
