      Namaste and Hello. My name is Dr. Kim Berling. In the year 2000 I went to Nepal for the first time to see Mount Everest (I did). I fell in love, not just with the country and its natural beauty, but with the people. I was so taken by the kindness, sense of humor, compassion, hard work, family focus, and all around wonderfulness of the Nepali people. But, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and the grinding poverty weighs heavily upon the nation. Upon seeing the serious lack of opportunities for these beautiful people me, and my new Nepali friends, started a non-profit organization (Compassion Without Borders).
      Nepal is one of the most beautiful, and poor, countries in the world. With the Himalayan mountains as a backdrop, Nepal is home to almost 30 million people. The economy of Nepal is based in agriculture and tourism, with mountain climbing bringing in over $100 million a year to this poverty stricken country. The average person in Nepal makes around $500-800 dollars a year, depending upon their employment. In 2015 the country was struck by two massive earthquakes, and in 2017 there was extensive flooding. These disasters led to the loss of housing, jobs, and economic opportunities.
      The non-profit organization, COMPASSION WITHOUT BORDERS (CWB) is trying to help Nepal get back on its feet. CWB is beginning a new women's handicraft group in Bhaktapur in Kathmandu, Nepal. Handicrafts are handmade items that are of excellent quality and craftsmanship. The CWB group will make such items as mittens, scarves, purses, caps, clothing, and bath supplies (like soap holders). This group will provide an opportunity for the women to make money and be able to meet the daily needs of their families. CWB needs funds to rent a work space, purchase supplies, and do some advertising. Projects like this have been very successful up in the mountain regions and has helped many families from becoming homeless. CWB needs your help to help the people of Nepal. Please join us!

Hi everyone. COMPASSION WITHOUT BORDERS is going strong. We are planning a new project in Kathmandu to organize a women's handicraft business. This will help women make money for their families and provide the basic necessities. Some women have even been able to lift their families out of the poverty level. If you would like to support CWB's new campaign, please donate to: gofundme.com/tba5d4
We appreciate your caring!
