BENEFITING: Rising Child - Nepal Ltd
My organization, The Rising Child Nepal Foundation, operates a home for former street children in Nepal. We are raising money to provide much needed items for villages in several villages north of Kathmandu, areas with massive destruction after the major earthquake on April 25. We are purchasing items like cookware (many have lost all cookware spoons, kerosene stoves ), buckets to carry water, long distances, water purifiers and iodine tablets, oral rehydration salts, blankets,tents and other items. many people lost all they own. Our goal is to provide supplies needed for the long run, after the rescue organizations leave. in order to supply these items to as many villages as possible, we will also need to pay for transport of the heavy loads using porters and donkeys, as many villages are a day or more by trail away from main roads. Any help you can give to aid in providing this emergency relief is greatly appreciated. You can check out my website at www.risingchildnepal.com we are a registered 501(c)3 charity in the USA with a board of directors, all volunteer, and all donations will go only to supplies for post earthquake relief Thank you and Namaste, Margareta Kerr, founder and director.
