A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu, causing massive devastation in the nation's capital and largest city. Rescue efforts are underway and the estimated death toll continues to rise. Homes, buildings, and infrastructure have been badly damaged and destroyed. Relief organizations are mobilizing to provide support and emergency supplies to the people impacted.

Nepal Seattle Society is partnering with Nepalese Students' Association and Nepal Studies Initiative at University of Washington to raise funds for Nepal Earthquake victims.

  • For lesser known organizations, we will go through a approval process as we receive requests.

  • Individual volunteers must send requests through one of the non profit organizations.

  • NSS volunteers will report must be able to follow up and get report on where the funds are being spent.

  • Nepal Team will coordinate with those organizations to report on funds disbursed and suggest where we should focus on next.

 

July 16, 2015: Future of NSS Collected funds:


EC+BOD+Earthquake Relief Team meeting decided by simple majority to donate all funds to Nepal Government (PM Disaster Relief Fund). Everyone presented
their ideas on how the funds NSS collected so far will be spent. Other ideas presented in the meeting were:

  • Select one Non-­Government Oorganization and work with that organization to help with reconstruction effort, and give the funds to that organization in installments.

  • Split the fund between Government and Non­Government Organization.

NSS will still be a platform for groups or persons conducting fundraiser for specific non profit organization(s) in Nepal with prior notice to NSS.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nepal Earthquake victims. We join the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans are sending an urgent letter to the Department of Homeland Security to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and to extend other immigration-related relief to Nepal in the wake of last weekend’s tragic earthquake. The sign on letter is attached.

(Individuals interested in showing support are urged to sign the White House petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/designate-nepal-temporary-protected-status-tps-save-peoples-lives-devastating-earthquake).
