THE STORY:

THANKS to our community of supporters for helping reach our $75K fundraising goal!  We were deeply moved by the outpouring of compassion and generosity, and we want you to know that your help has already gone a long way in Nepal.

We now invite you to join us to hear directly from the Acting Director of global Humanitarian Response for Oxfam America, Nahuel Arenas, about Oxfam’s work in Nepal.

When: Thursday, July 9th at 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Where:  10 Estes Street, Ipswich, MA – EBSCO’s Riverside Conference Room 

This is an exciting opportunity to hear first-hand about how Oxfam’s approach of local partnership, rather than charity, comes into play in their relief and recovery work in Nepal.

Background About this Fundraiser:

In the wake of the powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal on April 25,2015, followed by the 7.3 magnitude quake on May 12, 2015, many of our customers and friends asked us if our family there is ok - Thankfully the simple answer is that our immediate family and close friends are safe. Many are struggling along with the rest of the country in the aftermath of these devastating events.

The next question was always: How can we help?  The best way to help after such disasters is generally to donate to effective and efficient charities that have an established presence on the ground.  We did extensive research on this, focusing on organizations that have local offices and are easy to research/follow-up with.  There are several such charities that we support; We decided to set up this fundraiser for one of them in order to give our friends a straightforward avenue for donating toward immediate relief efforts in Nepal.

We chose Oxfam for our "phase 1" efforts, because of their expertise as a global leader in preventing secondary crises by providing clean water, sanitation, and shelter during emergencies. We know that Oxfam is already partnering with local organizations, which positions them well when it comes to accessing hard-to reach populations; it does what it says it will do. They are a long-time trusted organization, and friends at the Haiti Fund also recommended them based on their experience of intense involvement in Haiti after the earthquake there.  In addition, we have worked with them in coffee-growing regions in the past as well.
