THE STORY:

SUMMARY

The earthquake, which measured 7.8 on the Richter scale, has killed over four thousands of people by today (Tuesday, April 28, 2015) and the death toll is increasing day by day. The exact figure is yet to come though there have been utmost efforts from several countries sending their aid workers besides Nepal itself. International aid has finally begun arriving in the Himalayan nation of 28 million people but disbursement is slow. The hospitals are filled the casualties at the moment, and the treatment facilities are unavailable with the overwhelming number of people due to lack of space, medical personnel, equipment, and medicines required.

Houses are collapsed. The one, which did not collapse are cracked and now fragile. A series of aftershocks, severe damage from the quake, creaking infrastructure and lack of funds have slowed rescue efforts in the impoverished, mountainous country.

People in frustration are now digging through rubble themselves to find remains of their loved ones after a devastating earthquake.

Nepal's most deadly quake in 81 years has hit several places throughout the country including that triggered a huge avalanche on Mount Everest that killed at least 17 climbers and guides, the worst single disaster on the world's highest peak. The devastation caused by the earthquake and many subsequent aftershocks in Nepal is tragic. Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families with hope for stability and recovery as soon as possible. But, for now, we mourn the many losses and seek ways to be of support and service.

Bhutanese Community Association of Pittsburgh (BCAP) is launching an effort to raise funds to support the victims in Nepal. We the Bhutanese people have been hit very hard with the news of earthquake devastation and we would like to do the best that we can to alleviate the sufferings in Nepal.

In the mean time Nepal is neither signatory to 1951 refugee convention nor 1969 protocol, so the country doesn’t have refugee laws. Yet Nepal was daring enough to refuge over 108,000 plus Bhutanese refugees for over two decades just on the basis of humanitarian ground. In addition, Nepal hosts many refugees from different countries like, Burma, Tibet, Somalia, etc. Although it is not mandatory for Nepal to take care of these refugees and evictees yet she did, does and will keep doing in coordination with UNHCR and the like organizations/agencies protecting and building their better future. Hence, Nepal is always caring and dear to many evictees and refugees. At the moment, the disasters in Nepal are very painful not just to the victims but also to all the Bhutanese throughout the world who were/are taken care of by Nepal for decades.

 

BCAP requests your wholehearted support in this move. The fund collected will be handed over to either Red Cross or any relief organization. All the donors above $50.00 will be posted with their names and amount donated in our web page: www.bcap.us.
