The disheartening news of yesterday’s quake left us reeling with the magnitude of this disaster. We heard from some of our ALCF team in Nepal as they continue to respond to the crisis in the capacity that we can, helping to fund emergency aid to remote regions. It is of utmost importance that you spread the word to colleagues and friends to dig deep with compassion and donate to the ORG or your choice to support Nepal. The quake yesterday added magnitudes of damage to high mountain villages so the relief effort and rebuilding process will take years. Our immediate response has been to allocate emergency funds to four badly affected regions, including Manang, Langtang, Ghorka and Solukhumbu and we are organizing a large building crew including skilled carpenters and masons to visit the Solukhumbu region in the autumn and help rebuild. Our volunteers will donate their time, travel expenses and efforts and funds will go to aid, supplies and salaries for indigenous people. In the months to come, plan a trip to Nepal and spread the wealth of our own lives to those who are less fortunate. It is still a beautiful country with magnificent mountains, valleys with extraordinary people and rich culture. Your heart will fill if you can travel and see first hand that your dollars are reviving the economy. Thanks to all who have already given!
With Kind Regards,
