2015 KRSA Nepal Earthquake Fundraiser

On April 25, 2015, 7.8 magnitude of powerful earthquake caused massive disaster in Nepal killing over 7,807 people. The earthquake damaged and destroyed homes, businesses, and historic buildings. As of May 5th, more than 15,911 people have been injured.

We have members of our non profit organization in Nepal, who are identifying the areas most in need. We are focusing our efforts on those villages that are located in rural parts of Nepal. Due to the landmark of our country and mountainous terrain it has been very difficult for the relief team to reach out to the victims. All of the money donated through this fund will be used to buy and transport the most basic necessities like food, water, and medicine. They are in dire need of these things as the supplies are quickly running out.

Kirat Rai Society of America (KRSA) is a non profit organization and it is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.

WE NEED your help, support, and prayers. With your help and contribution we will be able to help as many as we can.

हामी सबैलाई अवगत भएकै कुरा हो कि गत अप्रिल २५, २०१५ का दिन नेपालमा आएको ७.८ म्याग्निट्युडको बिनाशकारी भूकम्पले ऐतिहासिक सम्पदाहरु नष्ट पार्दै ठूलो धनजनको क्षति गरी नेपाल तथा देश बाहिर रहनु भएका नेपाली लगायत विश्व समुदायलाई नै शोकमग्न बनाएको छ । यस दु:खद घडीमा महाभूकम्पमा परि देहवासन हुनु भएकाहरूका नाममा किरात राई सोसाईटी अफ अमेरिका (KRSA) गहिरो समवेदना प्रकट गर्दै दिवंगत आत्माहरूको चिरशान्तिको कामना सहित शोकाकुल सबै जनामा यो विपत्तिमा धैर्य धारणा गर्ने शक्ति प्राप्त होस् भनि किरात राई सोसाईटी अफ अमेरिका (KRSA) परिवार प्रार्थना गर्दर्छौ |
