Appel: Extend your support in relief of the victims of the Himalayan Earthquake

 

A little monk amongst the ruins

The massive earthquake that struck Nepal with an intensity of 7.9 (on Richter scale) on 25th April 2015 has devastated the country.  Aftershocks continue to reverberate through the Himalayan regions, and have affected areas across the massive Gangetic plains - from Delhi to Kolkota.  It will be several days before the actual scale of this Himalayan catastrophe will be known to us. 

As Governments and relief agencies across South Asia and from around the world are scrambling to help the victims, each of us could do our bit to help.

In the meantime, you could contribute monetarily to relief and rehabilitation efforts - money that will go to credible agencies who have the experience of responding effectively to such catastrophes.
