Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Posted on Tuesday, May 12 2015

nepal-friendship-societyUK Nepal Friendship Society and students from BU are organising a fundraising event for the Nepalese earthquake victims, on Tuesday 12 May, from 4pm -7pm, in Bournemouth Square.

Nepal was stuck by a huge earthquake on 25 April and there have been numerous aftershocks since. This natural disaster has created havoc on a massive scale; people are traumatised and lacking the proper care needed, continuous heavy rain across different parts of Nepal has increased the risk of disease on an epidemic scale. The death toll has reached almost 8,000, and thousands have been made homeless and destitute.

As a result, the UK Nepal Friendship Society and BU students are planning to raise funds for immediate relief and to help with the vast operation to rebuild Nepal, by hosting an event in Bournemouth Square. Donations will help to provide the much needed aid to people who have lost their homes and their families.*

*Donations via the UKNFS will be provided to disaster victims through official/reliable Government of Nepal and Embassy of Nepal – London – recommended/advised channels.
