NAFA, Inc. Nepal Earthquake Relief

$69,846 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 591 people in 42 months

My name is Amy Hecht and I am a founding member of The Nepal Adoptive Families Association - a group of families from all over the world with children adopted from Nepal.  We are doing a variety of things to help with the relief efforts in Nepal including raising money to go directly to the children's homes and orphanages in Nepal. We are raising the money through Go Fund Me -- the money is going to be wired directly to the various homes and to NGOs in Nepal working solely to supply orphanages and children's homes with aid. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer your concerns.   Please help if you can and please share this message. 

Last week a powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.8 devestated  Nepal, killing hundreds of people. It struck between the capital Kathmandu and the city of Pokhara.  A Nepali minister says there has been "massive damage" at the epicentre. 

The Nepal Adoptive Families Association is collecting funds for the relief, rebuilding and support of the  impacted orphanages in Nepal. 

Your $5.00 will be invaluable.  Give less if you prefer, more if you can.

All money collected will be given to orphanage relief and long term medical and nutritional programs for orphanages and children's homes in Nepal - no funds are used for admin fees etc.

Please help if you can.

Namaste,
Hey there- NAFA Nourishes has a chance to be awarded 10K to help supply Plumpy'Sup to the children we work with in Nepal and am hoping you can join me in showing your support so that we win the contest. You see, each month KIND Snacks gives $10,000 to someone looking to get their socially-impactful idea off the ground. The cause with the most votes at the end of each month receives the funding. To cast a vote, simply commit to carrying out a kind act in your own life. Not only are you spreading a bit of kindness, but you're also helping a deserving cause reach its goals! You're only a few clicks away: https://causes.kindsnacks.com/cause/nafa-nourishes/.

One of the things NAFA Nourishes has discovered is that the children are seriously dehydrated. The water is not always clean and can give you a bellyache so it makes sense that they tend to avoid drinking. We've got filters and good clean water in place and now we are working on getting the kids to drink more water! Our healthcare team has been working hard on creating effective, informative and fun hydration education workshops.

NAFA Nourishes is so very pleased to announce that our shipment of Plumpy'Sup has made it across the border!

As you know our goal is to have every unparented child in a children's home or orphanage in Nepal receive 6 months of Plumpy'sup to provide the broad nutrient basics that their currently available diet lacks. Plumpy'Sup contains fats, dietary fiber, carbohydrates, proteins (the essential macronutrients), vitamins and minerals (the essential micronutrients). Plumpy'Sup is also an excellent source of vitamin E and B vitamins. After the six months of Plumpy'Sup we hope to see gains in health, height and weight that can be sustained with changes in the diet in the children's homes through varied menu planning, kitchen gardens and a multi-vitamin supplement.

The Plumpy'Sup costs NAFA about $10 per month per child. That is only $60 for the full course of 6 months.

Can you donate $10 today?
