What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The earthquake between Kathmandu, Gorkha, Dolkha and Pokhara has caused extensive damage in Nepal. Many in Katmandu are without homes or shelter from the extreme night temperatures there. Many villages are flattened, no where to go. People need clean water, food, blankets and clothes. Your help is very crucial.

All donations to this fund will support earthquake survivors. We have volunteers on the ground helping earthquake survivors. This fund will help our volunteers meet survivors’ who are in immediate needs of food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter

Potential Long Term Impact

We believe that our organization is deeply-rooted and connected with local communities in Nepal since our volunteers have traveled to many villages to run human trafficking awareness campaigns in the last 4 yours. We are in best position to provide long-term support to disaster victims by providing immediate support of shelters. We will be better equipped to face future disasters.
