I am a retired high school principal who, in 2008, trekked in Nepal and met and fell in love with the people of the remote villages of this wonderful country. Since then my wife and I have supported 2 families and a student in a school in Kathmandu. The two earthquakes of April/May, 2015 brought into focus not only the desperate situation faced by these families (who we consider our friends), but of their entire villages NE of Kathmandu.
Although we have an urge to jump on the next plane and travel to Nepal to help, we realize at our age we'd just be in the way of more able and skilled people who are already there doing wonderful work to help those most in need.
Our goal, then, is to raise money to send directly to the headmaster (Kinley D) of Pegasus English School so he can purchase much needed food, clothing, tents, stoves and fuel, and medical supplies, and transport them to several of the most desperate villages of his students. Also, our hope is to raise enough money to help the residents of the village of one of our Sherpas (also NE of Kathmandu). Jetha's village was completely destroyed in the second quake and 39 people were killed, several of them his family members.
We thank you in advance for your generous contribution to our Nepal relief efforts. Our dollar goes a long way in Nepal and you have our assurances that every dollar we collect will go directly to help the survivors of Jetha's village and the villages Kinley has identified as most in need.
