Nepali Orphanage Affected by Quake

$7,440 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 46 months
Langtang Children's Home, a registered NGO catering to disabled Nepali children and orphans, has been affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Kathmandu this weekend.

The week before this natural disaster occurred, the home lost its long-term sponsorship and suddenly lacked funds necessary for essential upkeep, including food and rent. Even before costs of repair and medical assistance relating to the quake's wreckage, the home's circumstances were dismal and urgent.

The children have now been camped outside since April 25th and buildings, and consequently, access to basic daily needs, are blocked off due to safety concerns.
Donations to this campaign will help pay for food, medical assistance, rent, medicine, diapers, home repair, and special care for the disabled children in the difficult months of recovery ahead for this children's home.

For more information, please visit Langtang's website:  http://www.lchome.org/

In addition to any funds you're able to contribute, please pass this information along to any organizations or individuals who might be able to consider longer term sponsorship of the home in light of this grave situation.

Thanks SO much for helping reach the initial goal of $3000. As terrible aftershocks continue, we've decided to increase the funding goal to $5000. Rebuilding will be a long, difficult road and Langtang needs all the help it can get. If you can, please share on Facebook!

Update: We have just received news that the children's home building has sustained sufficient damage that it is now unlivable. The organization will have to find a new building to rent, no small task given the extreme damage to infrastructure sustained across the city.
