BENEFITING: SAHAYETA ORG
I have decided to organize this fundraiser in the face of the crisis facing Nepal due to the recent devastating earthquake.
Nepal was struck with a 7.9 magnitude earthquake on April 25th, 2015. The devastation was profound. This earthquake has taken away more than 5,000 lives and still rising and the casualties have reached more than 10,000. Major infrastructures, homes, and heritage sites declared World Heritage Sites by the UN were destroyed.
They are in dire need of basic supplies like potable drinking water, blankets, tents and food.
This fund I am setting up is a humble effort to help the people of this region some of whom are now homeless, many do not have access to clean drinking water, children have no schools to return to and there are shortage of medical supplies.
No amount is too small. However, please donate with a big and open heart as the amount you give will mean life and death for the victims of this earthquake that is still shaking Nepal today and terrorizing the millions there. 100% of your donation will go to the Bay Area charity Saheyta.org.
Sahayeta.org is a registered 501c3 organization who support causes in the Himalayan region to further education, health, children’s’ right, elderly rights and women empowerment.
Saheyta.org is raising money and planning trips to Nepal to help affected people rehabilitate. Their website is www.saheyeta.org
Your donation and support will be immensely appreciated.
