| Standing with Nepal |

By Sandeep Kishore Moderator | 26 Apr, 2015

Dear YP-CDN,

I asked our dear friends @ Possible Health, working in rural Nepal, how we
could help. This is from Ryan Schwarz. Please pass on and help spread the
word. The US Government to date has sent over $1 million, but the estimated
economic toll has been project to be upwards of $10 billion.

From Ryan --

" Sunny! thanks so much for your email - nearly our entire team is located
in rural Far-Western Nepal for a leadership summit (more than 200 km from
the epicenter). There was no damage directly here, and the team here is
safe. We unfortunately have not yet reached all of our team members who
live in Kathmandu.

We are mostly cut off from updates as phone lines are jammed and internet
has gone out. At this time, the depth of the disaster is not known and we
are having a hard time accessing information. But the little bit of news
and insights we are gathering from friends, family, and colleagues suggests
that this is a major disaster -- one that will require a thoughtful,
dedicated, and fast response of a very large scale.

The coming days are a critical moment to save lives, and to provide food,
shelter and basic needs to those who have lost so much.

*Possible* is working with the America Nepal Medical Foundation (ANMF) to
raise funds for relief efforts immediately. Please consider donating today (
https://life.indiegogo.com/fundraisers/nepal-earthquake-relief-fund) and
we'd be deeply appreciative if you could pass along to your network as
well!.

Thank you for your concern again. Nepal will need a lot of concern and
partners committed to rebuilding from this event.

with hope and optimism for tomorrow - best, ryan"

Dear Sandeep,

Thank you for the prompt post. After sharing the ANMF link with some
friends, I was struck by the flood of empathy and support it generated.
Some have already donated on the site and we're taking it viral. Would most
appreciate if YP-CDN members in Nepal could give us more updates on the
situation, which non-profits are working on the ground, and what is needed.

Also, at least three friends based in India, with considerable disaster
relief and emergency response experience (non-medics) are ready to leave
for Nepal immediately to assist and can deploy there speedily.* If any
YP-CDN member organizations can do with more hands on the ground, kindly
let me know. ( <

Best wishes to Ryan and Bijay at this difficult hour.

Warm Regards,
Raja.
