FOR NEPAL –
100% of your donation goes to emergency assistance!
Immediate Goal: $10,800
Two intense earthquakes have rocked Nepal this spring, causing widespread devastation, with more than 6,000 confirmed dead and that number expected to continue rising. In addition, many thousands of people have been injured and rendered homeless, with the oncoming rainy season bringing the additional threat of disastrous landslides.
There has been widespread media coverage of the extensive damage in the capital city of Kathmandu, but reports also indicate that numerous villages and towns closer to the epicenter have been entirely wiped out. Many remain completely cut-off from assistance. Humanitarian relief efforts have begun, yet they are insufficient to provide aid to the roughly 8 million affected survivors.
Tibet Aid manages several projects in Nepal, including the Wind Horse Initiative, which assists Nepalese street children in Kathmandu and supports Tibetan women carpet weavers, in addition to our sponsorships of nuns, monks, and elders at the Khari Gonpa in northwestern Nepal. With communications down for weeks following the quake, we have just recently learned that all the monks, nuns and school children for whom we have responsibility are fine, for which we are very grateful! However, lack of food, shelter, and potable water continue to be pressing needs.
We are continuing to seek donations for emergency Nepalese earthquake relief. We cannot take on big clean-up or construction projects, but we can plug the gaps, providing assistance where the efforts of bigger organizations may not reach. One hundred percent of funds donated for this purpose will go to provide food, drinking water, tents, other shelter, medical relief, and reconstruction through our existing program contacts in and around Kathmandu. We urge you to donate to this effort by clicking on the PayPal button above.
Thank you for your generous support of the people of Tibet and particularly for your contribution to this relief effort!
