Nepal Earthquake Update #3

I received mind-blowing news this morning.The donations and packages sent to Nepal have gotten the attention of their President and made it into the newspapers. Because of all of you who donated, a free health camp has been set up in the Sindhupalchowk District where they are distributing free prescription medications and giving free check-ups. The clothes and blankets have also been distributed to those in need. What started out as just a small act of kindness, some money and old clothes, has saved so many lives that it's made national news in Nepal. What means little to us means everything to them. 
My friend in Kathmandu sent me this email to share with you, "Happy!! Happy!! Happy!! Thank you and your friends. I'm grateful. I'm lucky!"
I am overjoyed. Thank you to all who donated.

Nepal Earthquake- Update #2

I've been in contact with our friends in Nepal every day and Dharma has told me about all of the packages and donations he's received from everyone. He says (rough translation) "there are no limitations to my happiness." For those of you who volunteered to help but haven't done so yet, he has sent a desperate plea for prescription meds. which I explained we can't get for him. Many people are sick from living with no shelter in unsanitary conditions and need basic antibiotics. He's found a doctor who can give him prescriptions for the people who need the medication but there's not enough money to pay for them. Please donate what you can to the Paypal account: donationsfornepal@gmail.com and it will be used to buy them medicine. Also, if you've sent a package and can track it, please let me know if it's arrived at the post office in Nepal so I can tell Dharma. There's no fuel left so therefore no busses or taxis and he needs to walk all the way into the city to pick them up. 

To donate via Paypal:  Click the Tab that says "Send", Type in the email address: donationsfornepal@gmail.com Then put in the amount you'd like to donate.

If you don't already have a Paypal account just follow the steps to create one. It's very easy.

Thank you all again for your help. There are no limitations to my happiness!

Nepal Earthquake- Update #1

I want to thank everyone who donated to help our friends in Nepal. We are overwhelmed by your generosity and so far we've raised 80,500 Nepalese rupees. We are still accepting donations through Paypal at: donationsfornepal@gmail.com. The money will be split between Grameen Clubhouse to help the villagers of Kirtipur and the HECAC children's home which was destroyed during the earthquake. The children are currently living in tents. HECAC was founed by my friend Bishnu Subedi (no relation to Dharma Subedi). He and all of it's members are volunteers. ALL of the money is going to rebuild the home and take care of the children. To learn more you can go to www.hecac.org

This is the temporary shelter for the children until the home can be rebuilt:
