Bricks For Bhothang - Nepal

Donation protected

April 25 2015, Nepal was hit with an earthquake of 7.9 magnitude. It has caused devastating affects in Kathmandu and many rural areas of Nepal. Thousands injured, thousands of lost family members and many more now homeless. This country needs our help!

Buddha came to live in Australia when he married his wife Sarah in 2001. We now live in Adelaide with our 2 beautiful children.
Buddha is originally from a village in the district of Sindhupalchowk. His village"Bhothang" is situated North East of Kathmandu approximately 150km from the city in a very remote area of the Himalayas. At about 2500m in altitude his brother sisters and extended family live a very simple life of growing crops and tending to their animals.
They have no access to mains water, electricity is limited to one light globe per house at limited times of the day, and doctors or medical care is available 1-2 days walk away. Only in recent years has a road been built closer to Bhothang for slightly easier access. In the monsoon season this road is not always accessable due to rivers flooding and landslides.
Bhothang was affected terribly with all houses being destroyed. They have lost all their belongings and food under the rubble. Some lives have been lost and some people are still missing, maybe even trapped under the houses.

We need to help our family rebuild their lives. We are asking, please if you will donate money - no matter how small the amount. We will ensure that 100% of the money raised is used to rebuild homes and supply blankets, food and cooking equipment. We will assist in ensuring these supplies make it to the village. Buddha will also hopefully go over to his village soon and see that all funds will be spent on what is needed the most. It will take awhile to rebuild but our help will give them the strength and hope they desperately need.
The big international aid organisations like Red Cross and Oxfam are doing fantastic work in Kathmandu but they just can  not get to the rural  areas quickly. That's why they need our help asap!

So please help us to help our family. Every little bit will help.

We thank you so much!
