NEPAL EARTHQUAKE- SUPPORT LOCAL HEROES
Organized by: Sandhya Kapali
AMIDST THE CHAOS AND HEART WRENCHING DEVASTATION IN NEPAL, LOCAL HEROES ARE RISING, TAKING MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS.
A magnitude 7.8 mother earthquake on April 25th followed by hundreds of aftershocks and a magnitude 7.3 on May 12th one of the 43 major aftershocks. As many as 8000 dead and 20,000 injured and the Earth beneath is still shaking. Nepal is the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, home of Mt. Everest, the crown of the world. Nepali people are some of the most selfless hardest working people on earth. They live and die by their pride, people who will rather live poor but with dignity. An enchanting beauty surrounds the Himalayan country.
Today, Mother Nature decided she needs to transform and although she doesn’t mean any harm, she can’t help but take some of us with her and take some of our dearest possessions. And maybe she feels like she needs to send us a message, to wake up and step up for the next generations. And until we start giving more that we take to build a more sustainable world, she will show us to ruins, as ruins are the roads to transformation.
And it is happening, some of us are transforming into our better selves. Locals are rising to help each other, they are giving more and they are stepping up. They are shaken, yet the best of their humanity has been awakened, a feeling of unity and love for the nation is flourishing more than ever.
I started this fundraiser to help the earthquakes survivors put their lives back together to some degree, to make any impact, even if it’s just a drop in the bucket. In the process I learned about local people that are helping the community by organizing their own relief efforts, people purchasing and distributing relief supplies out of their own pockets. Operating out of the system, because the corrupt government has failed the people in many ways even at these dark hours.
The funds that I have raised have and will go straight to these individuals, who are selflessly helping those who are in need.
Your donation, a part of your earning, your hard work will go to a part of the world where it is needed so greatly.
YOU CAN MAKE AN IMPACT, PLEASE RISE UP AND HELP.
NO AMOUNT IS SMALL JUST DONATE!!
A very big ‘thank you’ from the deepest parts of my heart, for those who have donated already. Because of your donations I have been able to support local heroes of Nepal.
