Why I Support #WeHelpNepal
My name is Priscilla Devi Prasad, Founder & Creative Visionary of LoveFound.
I have spent the last 8 years of my life committed to supporting marginalized communities in Nepal.
I recently returned from a 4-month term in Nepal this year, barely missing the earthquakes by 8 days!
I have been working with a group of orphaned youth in Kathmandu for the past 7 years, where the earthquakes have had a major impact on the environment and the people living there. Our projects have formed connections with many amazing individuals and initiatives in Nepal and I feel a deep sense of responsibility to assist in every way that I can...
I believe in the power of people coming together to make a difference.
Being the founder of a grassroots organization, I understand the importance of transparency and the impact of channeling funds directly to where it is needed.
I chose to support #WeHelpNepal and share with my social networks because I trust and believe in this collective team effort and am also acquainted with one of the founding members.
Deep love & gratitude to all who join us in the efforts to uplift Nepal in this challenging time!

ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN
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.
