Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless when two powerful earthquakes shook Nepal on April 25th and May 12th.
I really think the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is doing very well. From Tanzania Nyarugusu Refugee Camp to Nepal’s earth quake incidence. I say well done. The IRC has been putting efforts tremendously just to helping the human society live comfortably. Hopefully, this is done through the agencies and affiliations that believe in them. You could imagine Association for Aid and Relief (AAR) Japan , the IRC’s partner organization in Nepal aiding in this regard. It is just brilliant when people believe in you. Yes, and now I do too. If only I fall for you and you do the same for me, won’t we just get along? Of course we would.
“In these mountainous areas we see about 80 to 90 percent of the houses made of stone and mud are either totally destroyed, partially destroyed, or they have cracks,” says Noriyasu Okayama, AAR’s regional manager for Asia. “The first priority for now is shelter and food.” If at least they have been able to undertake majority of these activities, then the rest would not be a much hitch either. The simple thing is they are really doing well. Moving from one’s home to take care of someone, voluntarily, day and night tirelessly, made simple by joining an organization, the less privileged care your care, well done indeed. With the issue of shelter and food, there are plans underway already. Yes, of about 8,000 bags of rice and food not excluding, foam mats and matters of shelter, all these by the AAR’s.
However, this cannot be done by them alone, of course I know you far from Nepal. Nevertheless, you can donate to help save a live and reduce a burden. If you ask me I will tell you that no little amount is small. You give according to what you have. The International Rescue Committee’s partner, AAR, is on the ground providing lifesaving assistance to quake survivors in one of Asia’s poorest countries. They are doing their best in their capacity to suffice the situation with what they have. Nevertheless, giving them a lending would be appreciated. If some £49, £150 or £300 is what you have, then what are you waiting for? Sometimes in life you have to assume the position of certain people and change their world in your own capacity. Below this article would be how to donate or reach them.
In addition to this, you can hopefully help if you are around that vicinity in reasonable forms possibly. When it is done in kind or cash, they all aim at one thing; helping the victims of Nepal, 2 Thessalonians 3:13 (ESV). If they would probably forget what you did for them someday, mind you, God would not forget it, Hebrews 6:10 (KJV). It is all about you and the world around you. If you cannot help possible the people around you, how much more the people afar? The AAR’s are far from the victims, do their possible best to aid. They have dedicated themselves to that particularly. It is most honourable in life to put a smile on someone’s face. Make that soul feel your touch of concern.
Finally, you could imagine how the rain has already landed on its two feet. It is raining in cats and dog, very heavy indeed. This would be an emergency relief fund. Guys let’s put our hands together. Below is the information and link to their site.
