Firstly, thank you to everyone who has donated to our PaP Nepal appeal so far, we have had a fantastic response and have now raised close to £10,000. This may seem a drop in the ocean but we can guarantee that your donation is having a direct effect on the people who need it the most. Being a smaller organisation our projects are able to work on a 1 to 1 basis with the families most in need, and through that we are able to ensure all donations get to the front line. We have made the first payment to the project and Krishna, working alongside other organisations, has already reached many people with essential basics, including food, medicine and tents.

But we still need to reach more people. As I’m sure you are aware another large earthquake struck this morning with a magnitude of 7.3, we have not heard since from the project, but this new earthquake is sure to have done further damage in the areas that we work, particularly in Kathmandu. The rainy season is approaching, potentially life threatening conditions such as diarrhoea and dysentery are rampant and problems that were present in Nepal pre earthquake are now critical, including the very real threat posed by human traffickers.
It is a race against time to reach people, please donate what you can.
