UPDATE - we have hit our $5000 initial goal witht he help of some amazing souls!! we are still accepting donations as we can always utilise more help for further supplies to help more people. We will be transferring money this week so they can get to work and will be updating pictures as soon as we can! Once again thanks to everyone for their support we are all so humbled by your donations and assistance to this cause x
My sister Kate & her husband Rahul are lucky to be safe following the devastating earthquakes in Nepal. Being on the ground in Kathmandu they are experiencing first hand the devastation and they need our help! Through their trekking company connections, they have managed to source some new and second hand tents to provide immediate assistance as foreign aid is taking some time to reach those in desperate need. Their idea is very simple, they have people power that can get materials by foot to villages that are cut off and are looking for financial assistance to help save lives. Outlying villages from Kathmandu have been cut off by road and are not being provided with assistance. People are living with their children in unsafe environments as they have no other choice. We are looking to raise $5000 for 10 x 20 man tents and 2 water tanks to help out 200 people, but would love to be able to double of triple that number if we can get the support. To make matters worse Nepal is entering monsoon season so the urgency of this help is of utmost importance. Will be providing updates with pictures of where the assistance is being utilised.
