As members of Nepalese community living abroad, we are deeply saddened by the devastating impact of the floods and landslides in the southern parts of Nepal.
As of 13 August 2017, at least 50 people have lost their lives, and hundreds reported missing after torrential rains triggered floods and landslides in Nepal, according to the leading local and international news media.
There has been a shortage of supplies of medicines, foods and basic amenities across the affected regions. Since we cannot be there to provide support physically, we would like to appeal the community members and broader Nepalese communities residing in Australia to contribute by raising funds or making donations.
Members of Madheshi Community in Victoria Inc. have already started collecting funds in the following account:
Account Name: Madheshi Community in Victoria Inc.
BSB Number: 033 338
Account Number: 493 165
If you would like to be part of this noble cause please make a contribution by making a donation into the above account with the description "Support4FloodVictims", or donate directly here to this campaign.
All money that has been collected as part of this initiative will be transferred to the organisations which have been working to provide the support and relief materials to the flood victims.
