In response to the tragic Nepal Earthquake, we Hyolmo Youth Club are reaching out for your help. We are non-religious, non-political, and community based social organization that provides a platform for facilitation integration of Nepal immigrants into the US society.
From the day we heard about this tragic incident, we have set up a 24-hour candle light vigil at Diversity Plaza in Jackson Heights, NY. This vigil is dedicated to increasing awareness that help is needed in Nepal. It is also in memory of all victims. It has been a huge success, we have had a very good response from the media; therefore awareness is being made every hour.
The victims of the Earthquake are receiving emergency care; next they will desperately need a different kind of help - help healing their shattered lives. Due to problem with communications, most of the media coverage of the earthquake has focused on Kathmandu and its neighboring cities. Which means, the villages’ opportunity to access to any foreign aids is very slim. Therefore, an organization like us has taken the step to help villages directly. While, our major focus is our region, Helambu, we are determined in helping the next village if we have remaining funds. The road to recovery will be long; however, your kindness will get us through.
Many local health and welfare professionals, teachers, students, friends and neighbors are enthusiastically offering their time and expertise to help with this project but our needs are many and all levels of support are needed. We need volunteers, supplies for the camp and money to help defray the costs.
