May 12 Earthquake:
Nepal was hit by another earthquake on May 12 that measured 7.3 on the Richter scale. This was followed by six aftershocks of magnitudes 5.0 or higher. The death toll has currently reached 83 people and the injured over 1000. This is just two weeks after more than 8000 people died in the previous earthquake that occurred on April 25. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, on average there are 15 earthquakes of magnitude 7 or higher that are recorded across the globe each year. Nepal has seen two of these in just 17 days. Your donations will be used to provide immediate relief to the victims by giving them food, clean water, and shelter and then be used for long-term recovery efforts.
April 25 Earthquake:
The 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25 has killed over 2500 people in Nepal, India, China, Bangladesh, and Tibet as well. The earthquake also triggered an avalanche that killed 18 climbers and trapped many more on Mount Everest. Nepal has been declared to be in a state of emergency and the victims need food, shelter, and clothing. This fundraiser has been started by two high school students, Prathik and Avantika, who believe this is a cause that we all need to contribute to. The money will be donated to Global Giving, an organization that will use these funds to provide immediate relief to the victims by giving them food, clean water, and shelter and then use the money for long-term recovery efforts.
