“Dear friend, On April 25th, 2015, a Saturday morning at 11:56 local time, Nepal was badly hit by an earthquake reaching 7.8 on the Richter scale. Its central point was located about 90 kilometers from the northern parts of Kathmandu, and close to the nearby Himalayas.
This massive disaster has killed actually more than 8500 people, including also many innocent children. Furthermore, 15.000 people are wounded and 500 people are still missing. The outcome: several schools, health posts, and the heritage sites of Kathmandu plus another 250.000 houses are totally damaged.
Homeless people are looking for assistance, in search of clear drinking water, food, medicine and shelters. The earthquake affected Nepal’s extensive hilly landscape: 20 mountains regions with a population of eight million inhabitants.
Luckily, my family and I, we were safe. However, we lost our house in the village.
Therefore, as we are concerned about other people, we started right away the active support of victims.
We donated blankets, drinking water, dry food, and tents in some village area parallel to international organizations, which do the support of Nepal with many aids arriving from all over the world here.
However, it is still not sufficient. Especially the need for shelters is huge: victims are looking for tents as a short-term accommodation.
Please, I would like to request you to join hands together for this relief program which helps the victims here: you can contribute anything, just as you can, and we will take all your assistance directly to the victims. As a proof, we will send you pictures of all the activities. We can be just a bridge between you and the victims.
For long-term we need to support health posts and schools and to rebuild houses; this will take some time, maybe some years. If you want to donate in cash we can provide you the bank account. We will buy goods and distribute these to the victims. I am looking forwards your kind response.Best regards Rabin Baral ”
