Nepal Earthquake Relief Appeal

Hello everyone,

Please consider this organization for donations to help victims in Nepal. Durga and Fionna have been
doing wonderful things in Nepal for years, they are near and dear to us. Your money will go directly to those in need and not filtered through the hands of the Nepalese government and other relief agencies.

One of their recent projects is building earth bag homes. These homes survived the earthquake. Their knowledge and energy can spread throughout the Himalayas as a way of the future for safe affordable housing in the mountainous regions.

The Khumbu (Everest region) faired pretty good all considered, people in the city are in arms reach of foreign aid. We worry about the people in the rural areas devastated by the earthquake. These people will get help to them.

Thank you for your support if you can.

Tim and Becky Rippel

BBC Radio has just mentioned that Sindhupalchok where FSH operates has been very badly affected by the earthquake with Government estimating the loss of 40,000 homes there....Fionna Heiton reports that the recent earth bag constructed education centre for kindergarten children has stayed standing after the earthquake. I second you Tim in recommending FSH to be supported to construct many more earthquake proof child centres and educate young children. Education is the route out of the cycle of poverty that blights Nepal.

  1. Tim, do you know if FSH is registered for donations in Canada? Canadian government has promised to match any donations. David
