Why I Support #WeHelpNepal

In the chaos of post-disaster situations, we must remember that local people have the best knowledge and networks to rebuild their own communities and therefore it is critical that they are given the platform to lead. We Help Nepal is currently funding several local volunteer initiatives, including "Friends of Nepal" (Friends of Nepal - wehelpnepal), the volunteer collective I am directly involved in. Since the first earthquake on April 25th, our group has been working tirelessly to provide several thousand emergency relief packages of food and shelter to villages that have otherwise not received ANY aid. Local volunteer groups like ours have largely been the first responders to reach remote villages across the 12 most affected districts. Monsoon rains are just a few weeks away, and with every shake more lives and livelihoods are lost. The suffering is immense and the work has only just begun.  Please consider donating -- your money will go directly to people in need (no overheads, no red tape).

We are not a traditional disaster relief organization.

We Help Nepal is network of artists, business owners, doctors, teachers and development workers who have lived or are currently living in Nepal. We are united by our mutual connection to Nepal and our commitment to alternative development models.

Our expertise comes from our awareness of the Nepali social and political landscape, and our connections to local organizations that are beneath the international radar.

The recent earthquake was a natural disaster intensified by the man-made forces of rapid development, poverty, and conflict driven displacement. This fund will support immediate earthquake relief and rebuilding efforts rooted in a philosophy of relief to self-reliance, disaster to sustainable development.

We recognize that in this tragedy there are seeds of hope that will sprout from the rubble.
