In the wake of the recent 7.8-magnitude earthquake, despair continues to spread through Nepal like wildfire. The most powerful earthquake that has hit Nepal in over 80 years, it is clearly evidenced in the death toll that is already up to over 4,000 and still counting, with at least 10,000 hurt as well. Apart from the shattered temples, toppled houses and collapsed buildings in capital Kathmandu, up to 70% of the houses in the rural areas near the quake’s epicenter in Gorkha have reportedly been destroyed, leaving over eight million people in 39 districts affected and in need of food, water, sanitation and shelter. Hospitals are facing problems of inadequate space and supplies, leaving the victims increasingly vulnerable to disease and death.
The Nepali government is struggling in their relief efforts and they need all the assistance and support they can get. In light of this, let us take time to lend a helping hand to those in need through monetary donations. This can be done through Junior Chamber International Alabang, who will send the money over to Save the Children Philippines and to JCI Philippines who, in turn, will use it to purchase supplies for the earthquake victims. JCI Philippines is in close coordination with JCI Nepal to send help. JCI Alabang will also send donations to the worldwide JCI relief effort, JCI Operation Hope, where funds will be used to support JCI’s collaboration with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to organize a mass effort to meet the needs of the children affected by this tragedy.
To donate, please make checks payable to Junior Chamber International Alabang, Inc. or deposit amount to our BPI account under Junior Chamber International- Alabang, Inc. with account number 0081-0608-27 and email deposit slip to email@example.com.Meet-ups to pick up donations may also be arranged if it is more convenient. For any questions about the organization and relief efforts, please do not hesitate to contact JCI Alabang Treasurer Janette Lim at 0917-5340541. Listed below are the available JCI Alabang solicitation packages for Nepal.
