Help #RiseNepal

#RiseNepal is a volunteer effort supported by the Global Peace Foundation and other members of the Asia Pacific Peace and Development Service Alliance. To date over 800 local and international volunteers have been engaged to meet the immediate and long-term needs of earthquake victims.

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit areas surrounding Kathmandu on April 25 and subsequent tremors have left hundreds of thousands without homes. The “Shelter of Hope” campaign, implemented by #RiseNepal volunteers, will provide shelters that will last through the impending monsoon season. Materials can be used later for permanent structures. 

Over 400 shelters have been built to date. Help raise $75,000 to build 600 shelters in Nepal! A donation of $125 can build one shelter to house a family. Donate by clicking here.
