Why I Support #WeHelpNepal
I know all of you have shown your concerns and shared your thoughts and prayers with Nepal. You all must have done your voluntarily contribution/donation online or taken part in any of the local events in your areas or beyond. Here is one more opportunity, if you still would like to help raise some funds to work on recovery and for rebuilding Nepal, especially on the socio-economic and psychological aspects, please help me to raise more. Click the link below to donate now, thank you for your generosity.
I am Suresh Tamang, PhD Social Welfare and I have a MBA in Health Planning and Management, originally from Nepal, currently based in Honolulu. I have over a decade's of work experience with non-profits in managing community based health and development projects with specific knowledge in rural development, community organization and civic education. I started my development carrier by serving an emergency rescue and relief operation in (1990s) in central Nepal, and working for a socioeconomic rehabilitation project in Nepal. I am an American Red Cross Volunteer (disaster/international services) and restoring family links advocate/instructor.
I am willing to go home ASAP, with some fund and project ideas to help our people. I am really worried about the psychosocial and behavioral health of our people besides the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the physical infrastructures, food security and livelihood. You can also suggest me what kinds of post-disaster recovery works that we can do in Nepal, I am willing to collaborate with you all if you are interested to help us.

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.
