Nepal Earthquake Victims Relief Fund

THE STORY:

One of my fondest memories of growing up in Nepal is the weekend trips to Durbar Square, the old palace.  Mom would dispense a history lesson, dad would talk about not meeting my mom until college despite growing up a block away from her, and my sister and I would patiently wait for our ice cream treat from the local dairy.  The memories of this simple yet comforting family ritual sustained me through rough patches when I first moved to the US and embodies what it means to me to be Nepali.  Daily life in Nepal appears more complicated on the surface compared to developed nations, but its citizens, people like my Mom and Dad, always look for the best in a situation and transform mundane moments into cherished memories.  Though I left Nepal when I was 17 and I’ve heard my dad’s story a million times, we still continue the Durbar Square tradition every time I return.  Except this year – this year will be different.

How much bad luck can an entire country suffer from?  The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Nepal on April 25th was followed by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake on May 12th.  Two major catastrophes within two weeks of each other just as rebuilding had started seemed unthinkable but is the stark reality.  The disaster has claimed more than 8,000 lives (and counting) and devastated much of Kathmandu and the surrounding areas including Durbar Square.

Aside from my family’s constant fear, they are unharmed, but the vast majority of Nepal is suffering.  We want to do our part to aid the victims of this tragedy and we need your support.  Please donate generously.  Your contributions will be channeled through Help Nepal Network, a registered, US-based 501(c)3 charity that my family supports (donations are tax deductible).  Please help rebuild my home.

Thank you so much for your support.

With sincere gratitude,

Ash & Kim
