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.
Here are links:
SAHAYETA funds focus on reconstruction efforts including public health and safety and long-term rebuilding.
