THE STORY:

In the face of insurmountable destruction the Nepalese community, bay area organizations and communities led by local charity Induz, has come together to create a grass roots movement to organize and deliver earthquake relief to Nepal. 

Nepal Earthquake Relief Grassroots Efforts in Bay Area

Bay Area grassroots community response to Nepal earthquake gets overwhelming response in just 5 short days on Facebook...

SILICON VALLEY, CA.  - A testament to the power of a collective heartfelt community response, social media and quick action has produced unbelievable response.

One Bay area resident's empathy, response and desire to help has led to over 7,000+ followers on Facebook in 9 days and resulted in over 932 pounds of medical supplies already on the ground in Nepal being distributed in remote areas previously unreached by aid!

On Monday April 27, just 6 short days ago, Ray Mitra and his wife Piya Mitra created an event flyer on Facebook to collect some donations in response to help those who have lost so much. Never did they expect the resulting "firestorm" of response as goods, money, assistance and radiant smiles poured in from every direction. Today over 8,000 people are following this effort through messages, updates and pictures on Facebook.

5/11/2015: Phase II of Relief Efforts - Rebuild 
Since the earthquake, the community has come together and helped us deliver 1500 pounds of medicines for immediate relief at rural villages of Nepal.
In the next phase of relief, our focus is on long term support. We appreciate your continued support.

1. Roof over their head - With Monsoon coming soon, we want to be able to provide a roof over their head. Tin roof will be a good permanent alternative to tents.

2. Water Purification System - The water conditions at several villages are not hygienic causing gastroenteritis. We would like to eradicate the root cause by providing clean and safe drinking water.

3. Medicines - Prescription medicines, Tums, pepto and Hydrocortisone, water purifier tablets, Glucose powder, Electrolyte powders,
