A colleague of mine recently returned from Nepal and set up a fund for earthquake relief. I thought I’d repost:
As some of you may know, I just got back from Nepal where I saw first-hand how much destruction the earthquake has caused. While I was there, our guide, Nama, had his entire village in the mountains destroyed and many other mountain villages were also destroyed as the epicenter was in the mountain region. Although the larger charities have seen a lot of support, most of the money seems to go to Kathmandu and these mountain villages, which are very hard to get to, are not seeing any aid.
For this reason, our group started a fund that Nama could use to start rebuilding his village and the surrounding areas in order to provide relief directly to the hardest hit areas. Nama is very active in the local charities of Nepal, especially in the mountain regions, and will definitely be able to use the money much more effectively than most. He recently made it back to his village and I attached a couple pictures of what’s left of his family’s house.
If you want to donate please use this link and let me know if you have any questions, any amount will be very appreciated, thank you!
