About the Campaign
I am supporting The Help Nepal Appeal, a social platform that brings people together from around the world to support the people of Nepal and helping them to raise much needed funds for 10 Special Needs children in the rural Tanahun District of Nepal to gain clean and sanitary individual beds for each child.
My goal is to raise $400AUD to help towards the cost of having these beds made. These beds will be hand built by a local community carpenter (helping to fully support and empower the local village) they are a unique design that gives each Special Needs child a safe and secure space of their own.
These children, who had been deprived of proper support before The Help Nepal Appeal decided to help, not only share this wooden platform to sleep but also in this limited space they also have to learn, eat and live 24/7 for most of the year. I am personally so happy to be helping to give these children not only better living conditions but also more hope for the future.
Background information about The Help Nepal Appeal
On the 25th of April 2015, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that ripped from the epicenter 48 miles (77 km) Northwest of Kathmandu right throughout Nepal followed by two large aftershocks that killed over 9000 people destroying villages and leaving thousands without homes.
Founder Jody Lee Dontje set her life mission after that day to give back and help the Nepali people get there lives back together so that they can become independent again with needing our help. This is when TNHA was born.
“The Help Nepal Appeal” is a social platform that brings people from around the world together, to allow individuals and organisations locally and globally to reach remote parts of Nepal. We empower national citizens and volunteers from Nepal as well as international volunteers from around the globe.
Relying mainly on social media, our non-for-profit social initiative shines light onto the power of human connection and story sharing.
Our greatest passion is empowerment, we seek to empower communities, families and individuals so that they become independent and not depend on our help. We allow men, women and children to prosper and flourish, to create more sustainable ways of helping.
