ANMN Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund Status
Dear Community Members:
Thank you very much for your ongoing support with Nepal earthquake relief work.
As you know, Nepal has been facing a major crisis over the last few months. Unfortunately, that has created roadblocks for all the earthquake rehabilitation and rebuilding work to be done smoothly in Nepal. On top of the current crisis, winter in Nepal has been hard for most of the earthquake victims.
We are trying to do our best to get the funds out to those in need, so ANMN has started “#1000 blankets” project as our winter relief work in Nepal to keep people warm in earthquake affected area.
Apeckchya Karki, President of ANMN is in Nepal and is working with various groups and organizations there to distribute blankets to kids, elders, disabled people, poor communities, and people in the himalayan range in several earthquake affected districts.
So far, we have distributed winter blankets to 60 kids and adults in an orphanage, Matri Nepal Apanga Sanga organized Balashram at Tarkershwor Municipality, Nagarjun ward no 8. This Balashram was established with the help of all the local support and no international funds or support in the past. Most of the kids are of age 7-10 years and few of them are 15 years old. The earthquake destroyed most of their property- rooms have been all demolished. We were happy to spread warmth and bring smiles to these kids’ faces.
We also distributed blankets to 95 people of Majhi community in Jholunge Basti, Bhotsippa-9, Sindupalchowk. Majhi Gaun is one of the most deprived communities of Nepal. It is a marginalized community of indigenous fishermen. It is a isolated village by the bank of Jhyadi River. All the houses were completely destroyed in this village. 8 people lost their lives and 25 were critically injured.
We will be distributing more blankets in Sindhuli and Langtang area in few days to reach out goal of 1000 blankets and more. Along with winter relief we are also looking at health project to provide medical support to victims who are suffering from the cold weather in Nepal. We will keep you updated about our progress.
