As you all know, there was a deadly 7.9 earthquake in Nepal this past Saturday.
There has been huge damage and lots of people are suffering. As of this morning, it is estimated that over 4,000 have died.
Thank you for your heartfelt prayers. Many people have been asking how to help.
To donate canned food, energy bars, and clothing, there will be a box at the front door in Oakland office near Roxanne’s desk. The goods will be transferred to Liberty Auto in East Oakland which will ship it off on Jet Airways.
If you want to donate money, there are several organizations you can choose from. While a lot of efforts focus on Kathmandu, fewer resources are likely to penetrate those in smaller villages, especially those in the mountains.
