About Campaign

THE FAR-AWAY PEOPLE IN NEPAL MATTER JUST AS MUCH AS YOU AND ME!!!!

 

These Tshirts are to support the relief efforts for the Sunkoshi River Disaster victims, in NEPAL, to help them REPAIR AND REBUILD their homes! 156 people were killed in the terrible landslide that shook the remote area near the border between Nepal and Tibet. One school lost 50 children! One woman lost 13 members of her family! Three villages were completely wiped out! There are 1158 homeless people, and that is who we are working to help. The money from these tshirts will help pay for BUILDING MATERIALS to be used by Nepalese volunteers to get the homeless people back into PERMANENT SHELTER, instead of living in tents and under trees.




PLEASE HELP!!

More About Campaign

This is a picture of the landslide that completely blocked the Sunkoshi River Valley, isolating many villages, and the city of Barhabise from civilization. This area is on the mountain pass between Kathmandu the capital of Nepal, and the border with Tibet, which is in the People's Republic of China.

Here is Madhav Bhandari, the founder of Community Service of Nepal, passing out relief supplies to people who have been affected by the disaster. He had to ride for days on a rough track road through the mountains to bypass the landslide and get to the affected area.This is the group whose work your Tshirt will support, as they work to REPAIR and REBUILD the homes of the people who survived the landslide, but whose homes were destroyed or made unlivable.

1158 people are homeless, and have nowhere to go. That is 219 households. They just watch the government work to make a channel through the landslide to allow the water of the Sunkoshi River to flow, and drain the lake that has formed behind the landslide.

Here, rescue workers move boulders to open a channel so that the mighty Sunkosi river can flow again, and the city 2 miles up river will not be consumed by the lake caused by the landslide damming the river.

PLEASE HELP US RAISE MONEY TO HELP THESE PEOPLE REGAIN SHELTER AND HOMES!!!!!!!!
