EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL -25/04/2015

DEDICATED PAGE

 

In response to the many questions that we have received and the request on how to help Nepal, we obviously had to bring answers. We preferred to wait a few days, on the first hand to be able to join all our contacts and have sufficient and reliable information, and on the other hand to know the position of Lama Ngawang, whom we have been supporting from the start and whose actions always appear relevant to us.

First of all, it is important to say that all the “GCBS family” is fine. No dead or wounded is to be deplored among the people of the school. In terms of material damage, only the girls’ dormitory in the Pokhara school has a cracked wall, which can be repaired. This is real luck, and we are really grateful for this. Our thoughts, prayers and attention are with Nepal and its population, turned towards the many people who are suffering as a consequence of this terrible disaster.

In agreement with all our contacts in Nepal, with Lama Ngawang and the ”Sunshine Trekking” agency, we have decided to set up two actions, one on the short-term, one on the longer term.

On the short-term, we launch
HOME-RE-BUILD action, through which we intend to help in a punctual manner poor families whose house has been destroyed or is no longer viable. Our action aims at providing first temporary shelter, then in the longer term, assistance to envisage rebuilding according to sustainable, anti-sismic standards. We will focus on villages around Bakthapur, which have been among the most affected.

Our contacts in Kathmandu (Rishi, of Sunshine Trekking, and Jampalosal, a monk friend of Lama Ngawang) will help us in the selection of truly needy families to ensure that our action is efficient and well focused. Every single Euro donated for HOME RE-BUILD ACTION will get to its beneficiaries. Please donate for this action, every contribution is welcome :

We also need to have a longer term perspective. This is the vision of Lama Ngawang, of whom we support the action globally since the creation of our association. His action is mainly school-based, and his response focuses once again on the most destitute. Indeed, what will become of all the children orphaned by this unprecedented disaster? Who will provide these children with the education they are entitled to? Lama Ngawang has already decided to welcome in the GREAT COMPASSION BOARDING SCHOOL (GCBS) some thirty of these orphans, and to do so he needs our, your support. Considering that the annual cost to support one child is around 500,- €, every donation is welcome to ensure at least the first year. Beyond the punctual donation that anybody can do now, we will also need new sponsors, either to take charge fully of a child, or to cover part of the costs.

All the information can be found on our page dedicated to sponsorship.

TOGETHER, let’s help Lama Ngawang to quickly welcome these children! !
