THE STORY:

A massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on April 25, 2015 and caused widespread devastation across Nepal. There have been dozens of tremors and aftershocks since the first earthquake, further destabilizing structures and complicating rescue efforts.

Many efforts are being done to help the victims in Kathmandu and across the country. However there are still a lot of villages that are in dire need of care and help. Some of the villages are very difficult to reach due to road scramble and landslide.

This Fundraiser is to help raise money for the village of Sindhupalchok, located on the Nepal-China border. The Sindhupalchok District is one of the hardest-hit in Nepal. Almost all the homes in the villages have been wiped out. Roughly 40,000 homes have been flattened, and it is estimated that more than 1,400 of the more than 6,000 people killed following the quake were from Sindhupalchok. Aid has been slow to trickle into Sindhupalchok, due to the difficult access to the mountainous terrain, and its winding and narrow roads.

The money raised through this fundraiser will be sent to Hiren Lama, a local resident of Sindhupalchok, who is leading some of the local efforts to help his village recover from this ordeal by delivering tents, ropes and medicine to his neighbors in need. His efforts are so admirable and illustrate the kindness of the Nepalese people that I witnessed during my visit to Nepal in 2009. Let’s help Hiren in his efforts by contributing with a donation. Hiren and the village of Sindhupalchok will forever be greatful for your help. Please spread the word!
