Nepal was hit by a massive 7.8 scale earthquake on April 25, 2015. The quake has devastated several districts, taken over 7000 lives and injured over 10,000 (both tolls keep increasing). Most essentially, thousands of people are homeless and are living under the sky without food, water and shelter. They immediately need tents, food, water, medicine and all the support they can get.
About Jai Nepal Youth Group
We are a voluntary group of professionals and ex-Kathmandu University students working DIY to help the earthquake victims of Nepal. We are working as Jai Nepal Youth Group, and partnering with an NGO – Energy Environment Research and Development Center. Currently, our base is located at the Red Mud Café, Lalitpur.
We have been collecting funds from ourselves and from friends circle around the globe and we have been getting generous supports from them. After getting the funds, we have procured necessary relief materials (tents, mattress, food, water, medicine, etc.) and have been sending them off to various villages of three of the hardest hit locations: Kavre, Sindhupalchowk and Sankhu.
Now our main concern is how to sustain our relief effort because we need a constant fund to buy and distribute relief materials. In addition to that, everyone of us are working as volunteers and we need to keep our energy and dedication intact.
We need more relief funds to continue our operation and we hope to get the support from generous people and organizations from all over the world.
The earthquake might have shaken us but it hasn’t shaken our determination.
