THE STORY:

Update: Friends, Family, and Community: We can't thank you enough for your incredible generosity with your donations. As you have probably heard, Nepal was shaken by another 7.3 magnitude earthquake and many many aftershocks last week. We are told that our loved ones are safe, but not everyone is so lucky. These earthquakes have taken lives and changed lives in immeasurable ways. People are suffering with anxiety and living in fear from the hundreds of aftershocks that they are experiencing since the initial earthquake almost a month ago. Without question, the children affected by the earthquake will need so much support to return to a stable lifestyle. We are hoping to do our small part by delivering your donations directly to the source when Sudhir goes to Nepal in June 2015. Thank you again for your compassion, support and generosity.
With Love and Thanks,

Rachel, Sudhir, Sanjeeb and Kristie Manandhar

Original Post:

In the past few days, Nepalese people have shown great strength in the face of unthinkable disaster, uniting in rescue and relief efforts for earthquake victims. Many of our friends and family members left their loved ones in the moments after the earthquake to help people who were still in need. In the coming weeks, months, and years, Nepalese people will continue to face immeasurable challenges, including accessing clean water, stable food supply, and health care, and rebuilding countless schools, homes, and cultural heritage sites. The disaster response will shift from rescue and relief efforts to initiatives aimed at rebuilding this incredible country. In this grave tragedy, people have come together and shown a tremendous amount of humanity and goodwill. As international donors, we have the opportunity to impact the immediate and longterm response to this disaster by aiming our funds at the most vulnerable population in Nepal- the children.

The crisis that Nepalese people now face hits close to our hearts. While Sanjeeb moved to the U.S. from Nepal in 1993 and Sudhir followed in 2000, the majority of our friends and family still live in Kathmandu. Since the earthquake struck on April 25th, we have watched the crisis evolve in real time through phone calls, texts, and social media. The four of us, Sanjeeb & Kristie in Pittsburgh, PA and Sudhir & Rachel in Berkeley, CA have felt so completely powerless in the hours and days since the earthquake struck. Awaiting phone calls from Kathmandu for updates on the well-being of loved ones, hearing about the aftershocks that continue to rattle and re-traumatize our family, and knowing that the immediate devastation from the earthquake is just the beginning of a long road to repair the physical and emotional crisis that our community in Nepal now faces. We have decided that the most impactful way that we can focus our energy at this point is to raise funds to provide supports for the children who have been affected by this natural disaster.


With Sudhir and Sanjeeb’s extensive connections through friends and family, we know that we can connect strategically with local organizations to provide assistance for children in need. Our goal is to use the funds to support initiatives for children affected by the earthquake, including children living in temporary shelters, group homes, and orphanages, as well as to aid in rebuilding schools that were impacted.

With your generous donations and our collaboration with local organizations working on the ground, we can help Nepalese children rise from the chaos of this devastating earthquake. 100% of your donations will go directly to benefit children who were impacted by the earthquake. Thank you for your generosity and compassion. No donation is too small to make a difference.

Please expect an update from us during summer 2015 as to how your funds have been utilized to directly impact childrens' lives in Nepal. 

*Please note that it has come to our attention that since we are not registered as a non-profit organization, the donations are non-tax deductible.
