Kosh Kamala Orphanage in Nepal

$2,584 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 38 people in 35 months
I am raising money to help Kosh Kamala Foundation, a new orphanage in Nepal. The people who run it are friends of mine. Their father was my favorite student when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nepal, 1964-1965.  They have a FaceBook page:  https://www.facebook.com/Kosh-Kamala-Foundation-986255494780419/ and a website  http://koshkamala.org
Also, they are looking for volunteers to come to Nepal, live in the orhanage, and help with the children--see the website. 
My primary contact there is Renila Khati, with whom you can communicate on FaceBook.

Because GoFundMe has no way to get funds to Nepal, I will be withdrawing the donations myself and sending them to Renila Khati at Kosh Kamala. Let me know if you have any questions. --Pam Walatka

My phone makes my already-ample nose look huge, but otherwise, the call was big fun. Nice people, trying to run an orphanage in Kathmandu, still recovering from the big earthquake. If you have a minute and a couple of bucks......
