Appeal: Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund
VHP of America in Action
A massive earthquake, measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale hit Nepal. The
earthquake centered outside Kathmandu, the capital, was the worst to hit the
South Asian nation in over 80 years. It destroyed swaths of the oldest
neighborhoods of Kathmandu, and was strong enough to be felt all across parts of
India, Bangladesh, China's region of Tibet and Pakistan.
By Sunday afternoon, authorities said at least
2,169 people had died in Nepal alone, with 61 more deaths in India and a few in
other neighboring countries. At least 721 of them died in Kathmandu alone and
the number of injured nationwide was upward of 5,000. With search and rescue
efforts far from over, it was unclear how much the death toll would rise.
VHP of America requests your kind contribution to help the victims and their
family who are affected by this devastation. VHP of America will work with
appropriate agency to ensure that the donated funds only be used to help the
victims of this natural disaster.
VHP of America has established a relief fund and is soliciting all its members,
their friends and family members to contribute to this fund generously and help
the people who are in dire need of help and support. The volunteers from our
sister organizations in Bharat will visit the affected areas, assess damage,
provide emergency medical relief, provide food and clothes and eventually adopt
villages for rehabilitation.
VHP of America has extended their help with volunteers to help in Katrina and
911 disasters. We raised and donated large sum of funds to the victims of
Katrina, 9/11 attack, Haiti earth quake, Fiji Flood victims, Japan earth quake,
Gujarat earth quake, Hurricane Sandy and numerous other disasters. We could not
help the victims of these disasters without your generous contribution. We
appreciate your contribution and help in spreading the word to raise funds for
the victims of this devastating flood disaster in Kashmir, India. After the
Uttaranchal floods, with your help VHP of America had donated $100,000 to help
the victims. Please help VHPA uphold its mission of Seva (selfless service)
wherein lies the very essence of Hindu dharma.
