BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF NEPAL

THE STORY:

Update June 6, 2015

While relief efforts with food and medical supplies are continuing in Nepal, it is also time to start the process of reconstruction and rebuilding. The Monsoon season is right around the corner and the temporary tents are not going to hold much longer. One of the options gaining popularity in Nepal is the dome style temporary housing built with local materials such as bamboo and thatch complemented by the iron rods for framing, the corrugated tin metal sheets for roofing and bricks for walls. Each house can be completed within 4 days.

Friends of Nepal Los Angeles is helping to build at least 40 such houses for the Dalit and underprivileged families of Bandipur, Tanahun who lost everything during the 2 earthquakes. We are working with the local volunteers directly and the construction has already begun. It is estimated that these houses will last at least a year if not longer. This would give enough time for the families to gather their other resources, get additional help from larger agencies and weather the storm in the immediate future.  A sample pictures of those houses are provided in our fund raising site: https://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiser/edit/helpnepalearthquake/friendsofnepal

With our limited funds we believe this is the best way we can make direct impact to those affected. We truly appreciate your support and contribution at this time of dire need in Nepal. We will continue our efforts to raise more funds and hope to help other villages like Gorkha and Dhading.

Update: May 12, 2015

Dear Friends,

With your support and commitment, Friends of Nepal-Los Angeles continues to raise funds for the victims affected by the massive earthquake in Nepal. Just earlier today, another major quake with 7.4 magnitude with multiple strong aftershocks hit Kathmandu and the eastern part of Nepal. Early report indicate further loss of life and property. People in Nepal will need continued support from the international community like yourself.

FON-LA continues to work with Nepal Red Cross by providing funds for immediate needs and the relief efforts they are involved in. Red Cross is reaching to all districts and many villages in Nepal that are severely affected by this continued natural disaster. We assure you that every single dollar collected will be go towards the victims and the relief efforts directly.

Additionally, FON-LA has provided funding for a Local Youth Club in Bhimad, Tanahun District led by Mr. Bishwo Subedi, an individual we know personally. Mr. Subedi who lives in Los Angeles was visiting family in Nepal when the earthquake struck. As a result, he immediately mobilized the youth club and have reached many villages with truckloads of food, water, medical supplies along with tents and other relief materials. We know that with Mr. Subedi’s help we are making an immediate impact to help those in need right now. He has postponed his return to LA so that he can continue to help in Nepal.

We thank you for your support and continue to raise funds. Please share this with your friends and family.

UPDATE :April 29, 2015. After careful consideration, today we are disbursing $5,000.00 directly to the Red Cross account in Nepal, since that is where we believe the money will be put to best use. We are happy to provide verification to any donor that requests it.

UPDATE: We aim for transparency and every time we disburse funds raised, we will update this fundraiser to indicate where the money was spent.

On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. Temples and monuments that were centuries old are now completely destroyed. Without adequate earthquake-resistant building construction, many in Nepal are homeless as their homes have been completely or partially demolished. Electricity lines have been disabled, and water delivery pipes have been damaged.

Nepal lacks many of the basic emergency services that we take for granted in the developed world. In the next few days and weeks, food, water, shelter, and medical services will be in critical shortage.

The first few days after a disaster of this magnitude are critical for the victims and the survivors. Friends of Nepal urges everyone to donate what they can to help. The funds will be transferred on a regular basis, ONLY to reputable and reliable non-governmental non-profit organizations such as the Red Cross. None of the money donated shall go to line the pockets of corrupt officials.

If you wish to donate directly to the Red Cross. You can do so here as well.
