The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25th has already taken a toll of more than 3,800 lives. The number of injured is officially at 6,833. These numbers are expected to increase further as search and rescue teams reach remote areas. 39 districts have been affected, 11 severely. 8 million people are in distress. Families, communities, and children are displaced and in the turmoil of confusion that follows natural disasters. Food supply, water, medical attention, clothes – these are all in short supply, and sorely needed.
We are collecting funds to aid in relief efforts through carefully selected grassroots organizations.
