The 7.9 magnitude earthquake that crumbled the small country of Nepal on April 25, 2015 left an aftermath of destruction and an abundance of hopelessness for the number of lives that were lost. As the death toll continues to rise, even a month after the tragedy- relief and aide is needed more than ever. Historical infrastructure have seen irreparable damages and countless villages that were once booming with life, lie in eerie comatose silence. In the aftershocks that followed, it were these villages that; in fact, faced the most devastating trauma as damaged roads, landslides and a lack of aide to rural remote areas stood and continuously stand in the way of relief. Watching such catastrophe unfold on a television screen, I found that simply sitting on a couch wasn’t going to do any good. In 2004, I witnessed on television the causalities of a tsunami that severely inhibited my parent’s homeland of Sri Lanka along with 5 other countries. Though I was young I understood the magnitude of help needed to save culture and lives. This stance is no different. I intend to give 100% of the donations directly to aiding the rescue and reconstruction teams that will allow the countless amount of people who have lost intimate aspects in their life to find the courage and strength to return to a place of normalcy.
