In The Wake of the Earthquake: Help Nepalese Rebuild
Organized by: Vijay Thapa
As many of you are aware, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal affecting thousands of lives around the urban and rural areas of the country. 7000+ people have lost their lives and that number is still rising. Several thousand of others have lost their homes and are either living in tents/ other makeshift facilities. There are villages so affected by the earthquake, that there are barely any structures left standing.
Many entities are collaborating funds and resources for immediate relief/ rescue efforts and we are so thankful for all the aid and assistance Nepal is receiving in this regard. However, once the dust (literally) settles, the long term relief efforts will come into focus.
This platform is for contribution to the rebuilding efforts in the ravaged villages of the rural Nepal, particularly in the district of Sindhupalchowk, where only a few houses are left standing . The funds raised will be given directly to the affected parties. The affected parties will also be provided with basic knowledge on rebuilding economical yet earthquake resistant buildings.
Please help us help our people in this time of great need. Any amount of donation is encouraged and deeply appreciated.
