BENEFITING: MERCY CORPS
A major earthquake has struck Nepal, causing massive damage. More than 1300 people have been found dead as of now and thousands have been injured. The epicenter of the quake, which measured 7.9 on the Richter scale, was in a densely populated area near Kathmandu, and the impact has extended into Northern India.
The Nepali community here at Bates wants to raise funds to donate to a reputable organization that is directly working in the field to provide food and shelter to the needy. Any donation you make counts towards rehabilitating the victims of this tragic incident.
