BENEFITING: R STAR FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

This is an emergency request for your sponsorship for the many victims of Kavre, Nepal.

Since 2003 the R Star Foundation has been working in the rural areas of Kavre, Nepal by gifting two pregnant goats to each woman in groups of 25, with a male breeder, 51 goats. Additionally we gifted seed money for micro-financing per group. We ask in return to play the gift forward to another village they elect collectively. We have other programs serving the villagers but for now this serves to introduce our successes in place.

Until the April 25th catastrophic earthquake, awe are credited with over 15,000 goats in our 48 villages, amounting to around 30,000 people we affect.

The State of Kavre has been the largest, worst hit area of Nepal. Rural villagers will not receive government help quickly if at all, nor is it likely other charitable groups will help because of how remote the villages are. Access is too difficult; the villages are not known to but a few; fuel is not easily available, yet our villagers have the same immediate needs as in other accessible cities. They need temporary housing, clean water, food as well as medical attention and other human needs to be met.

Because we have worked in the Kavre area for better than eleven years, we know we can help restore the living conditions faster with assistance as needed to the victims who are currently living outside with no protection, in the rain. Plus get them food and clean water. We wish to act swiftly to avoid the diseases which can follow such events as well as needless suffering as they are experiencing from the earthquake right now.

We know you care. We invite you to join with us to help now and make a difference to those who have been ignored until we began working with them to better their lives. Help us restore their lives more rapidly to reasonable living conditions by your participation as generously as you can do.

We are organized with people of our villages for years; we can evaluate exactly what is needed in each village; we are trusted by the villagers; we are certain we can lead as well as navigate how to get the supplies to each village faster than any organization can do. Our focus as we understand it today, the villages Wojethar and Baluwa. As we learn more of the conditions of the other villages, we may add to the extreme needs villages to help first. Out of our 48 villages, we have reports of 6 at this time. our lead man, Rabin heads out to assess needs in our villages, with his uncle who will document the damage.

We are a 100% volunteer organization. Our overhead is under 8% making each dollar go further than other charities can do. Will you please, please partner with us to help where they will otherwise be neglected and or forgotten, left to suffer and in many cases die?

Your contribution is tax deductible EIN #83-0442006

Thank you for considering this mighty request. I thank you for your anticipated favor to join us.



Sincerely,
