Donate to Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund
A massive earthquake in Nepal and India has taken massive toll in terms of lives, lost homes and infrastructure.
Latest estimates show that the number of dead may cross 20,000. Rescue efforts are going on to locate survivors before it is too late. Massive rains and landslides are not helping the cause. People are sleeping in open, having lost their homes and also afraid of the after-shocks.
These people need temporary tents, clean water and food for survival. We urge all of you to donate money to charity organizations working for relief in these areas.
HIA will donate $500 to Nepal Red Cross to help in this effort.
We strongly urge all to contribute in this effort to rebuild lives of people.
After consultations with NANA (North Alabama Nepal Association), we've decided to setup a fund for Nepal Earthquake relief. The aim of this fund is to seek donations for immediate relief efforts. 50% of the money from this fund will be donated to Nepal Red Cross. Our research with USAID has shown that Nepal RedCross was one of the few organizations who were on the ground early and are dedicating all their resources for this effort. Rest of the 50% will be dedicated to a single infrastructure rebuilding project (a school or hospital).
List of donors and receipt of donation to the organizations mentioned above will be made available at our website. If you want to remain anonymous, please let us know.
You can donate money by check in the name of HIA. Please mention Nepal Earthquake Relief (also add "Anonymous", if you don't want to display your name among in the donor list) on the check.
Please remember that your donations are tax deductible as HIA is a 501c organization.
Checks can be sent to us at: PO Box 6861, Huntsville AL 35813 or you can give your checks at Suraj Imports or Spice Market.
