Help our Nepalese Roommate Rebuild
Organized by: Timothy Cohen
Over the weekend, a massive earthquake hit Nepal and neighboring countries, killing more than 3,700 people and injuring thousands of others. We are attempting to raise funds for our dear Nepalese friend and former roommate Bhoj Sharma, his wife, and two teenage children, who are currently displaced and living in the open as electricity, potable water, and lodging are unavailable.
The two of us spent a wonderful year as Bhoj's roommates while he was doing his post-doctoral research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Bhoj is an official at the Ministry of Education in Nepal and has dedicated his life to reforming education in his country. He welcomed us into his life and introduced us to the wonderful and amazing Nepalese culture. We would like to support our friend as him, his family, and neighbors look to rebuild in the wake of this tragedy.
Any donations are welcome as they will go a long way in helping them rebuild their lives.
