Appeal – For the Earthquake Affected Victims in Nepal

 

Nepal has been by devastated by the recent massive earthquake. This catastrophic magnitude-7.8 earthquake was primed over 80 years ago by its last massive earthquake in 1934, which razed around a quarter of Kathmandu to the ground and killed over 17,000 people.

At least 7000 people are now known to have died and more than 14,000 people have been injured. Death tolls and casualty figures are likely to rise over the coming days, and the risk of landslides on slopes made unstable by the quake mean that the danger is far from passed.

The impoverished nation is susceptible to extensive damage due to its weak infrastructure and is struggling to help its people with even basic necessities.

Constant aftershocks have forced them to sleep out in the open. However, the citizens of Nepal are freezing in extreme temperatures and the rains have made it difficult for them to sleep in the open. Water is scarce and children are at risk of contracting diseases.

DESH Foundation intends to help our much-loved neighbor by aiding the critical and complex phases of Rescue and Relief of the affected regions, during this need of hour. We are working towards assisting the affected people by providing them with the most essential supplies such as non-perishable food items, bottled drinking water, hygiene products, first-aid kits, blankets etc. in co-ordination with the Government departments and various other stakeholders.

Your support will ensure a huge difference to the victims’ families, we request you to participate in this cause and help them to fight this situation and help them overcome one of the most difficult phases of their life.

Funds raised from DESH Foundation’s efforts will provide the much needed humanitarian support to people and communities in Nepal. Your contribution will be a great relief to the people in distress.
