NEPAL ~ Straight To The Villages

Homeless Villagers who lost homes due to Earthquake Damage

” Please join me in aiding this small, crumpled, area of the world. Supplies – tents, building supplies and food – will be delivered to the villages outside the main cities in Nepal, devastated by the recent 7.4 and 7.8 earthquakes, with over 10,000 people dead. I am working with villages on the Tibet border side of Nepal.” Patrice

Recently, while in India, Patrice shared meals with a family from one of the devastated villages (as most were), near the border of Tibet. At present, nearly all the support is going to the cities, not to the villages, yet!  Plus, they are still experiencing 4 or more aftershocks, daily!  And, the monsoon season has started early!!  Please help! Thank you!

The government sent a car to assess damage, but has not offered help of any kind to the villagers.

Mostly, people are in need of shelter. The Nepal government recently applied a 46% tax on imported tents and tarps! All funds raised on this website are going straight to the people in the villages, NOT the government or cities!! Further, the Nepalese governmnet officials have withheld, kept, at least 1/2 the funds that were donated by other countries!

* Every donor will receive a “Protection and Blessing Cord” blessed by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.  Traditionally, the cord is symbolic of remaining within the protection of his compassionate embrace even after departing from his physical presence.
** No donation is too big or too small! Every dollar goes a very long way!
For every $25.00 donation, receive an “I Stand With Nepal” Shirt!
*** A Kata, from His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, will be given for very donation of $250.00! Offering a white scarf–called a Kata–is an ancient Tibetan tradition. The color symbolizes purity of intention and aspiration. It is an ancient custom to bring an offering when visiting a temple, shrine, guru, or teacher.

An ancient Tibetan adage says that giving and receiving go hand in hand, like breathing in and breathing out–it is a universal karmic principle that the more you give, the more you receive, which should not necessarily be understood in material terms only.

One earthquake victim says, “The weather is acting crazy here. I have seen the biggest storms ever in my life in recent days. The monsoon season is starting earlier this year! Some wonder if we will all be wiped off the face of the earth!

We are still getting aftershocks from the earthquakes, 3-4 times a day, minimum!!

Everyone feels as if the ground is shaking even when its not. Its like we all get dizzy turn by turn. It swirls, it drops, it moves back and forth, all sorts of movement. It is still very scary.” Pooja

Folks, you can see your help is needed! Please  help!  1$ US dollar is worth $66 Indian Rupies!   Thank you!!

Many Blessings
