BENEFITING: DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS USA INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 25, 2015
On Saturday April 25, 2015 an earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter ccale and lasting about a minute ripped though the mid hills of Nepal, including the Kathmandu Valley. A second quake hit the very next day measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale. We have had 112 aftershocks since. The death toll has reached 5000 and counting. People within the Kathmandu Valley and in the outer districts are in dire need of water purification pills, dry foods, tents and other emergency kits. The outer districts have been completely totalled and people are homeless and helpless. Secondary to this is the almost complete destruction of all of the Valley's ancient UNESCO World heritage sites, which after rebuilding will be the lifeline for hundreds of thousands of people employed directly & indirectly who benefit from tourism. This fund raiser is geared towards the immediate relief materials to be provided to suffering human lives, (most of the affected, unsurprisingly are little children and women). I thank you in advance for all your help directly from Ground Zero.
All funds will directly go to Doctor's Without Borders (Nepal earthquake relief operations).
