NEPAL EARTHQUAKE — UKNFS Action!
Please support Nepal, please support the great People of Nepal at this time of national tragedy! — UKNFS Nepal Earthquake Victim Support Fund
The UKNFS (UK Nepal Friendship Society) is collecting donations for relief for the victims of the Nepal earthquake. Any amount will be greatly appreciated, but please give as much as you can, and share this link with your friends and family. Nepal has been awaiting this disaster for many years now, and according to the cycle of major earthquakes in the country the national catastrophe that has taken place could have happened sooner (the last took place in 1934). PLEASE SCROLL DOWN to see our PAYPAL Donate link.
Your donation via the UKNFS will be provided to disaster victims –and in particular restoration and rehabilitation work — through both Embassy of Nepal advised channels, and in particular directly to reputable organisations on the ground in Nepal such as Child Nepal and the Bikalpa Arts Centre that the UKNFS has partnering and established relationships with. We have officers on the ground in Kathmandu and Nepal, and therefore can see that support/donaytions reach to the maximum extent those it is meant to benefit: we are in this way very fortunate, and we shall also in the weeks and months ahead be having fundraising events of our own and in partnership with others.
We shall post updates on our website about how your donation is assisting the victims.
Either use the PAYPAL link to donate online, or alternatively you can donate at your bank; if the latter, please if able mark your donation ‘Nepal Earthquake Victim Support’
