Why I Support #WeHelpNepal
Let’s all come together in helping to rebuild Nepal after the earthquake!
When Mother Earth decides to act – there's nothing much you can really do!
So much fear, panic, stress, tension and helplessness... After the first earthquake I ended up in a local park since that was the safest area to be at that moment. I'll never forget the desperate feeling I had while siting on that wet grass. No food, no water, no warm clothes... Everyone surrounding you is quite pessimistic and you have trouble finding something that is going to make you feel stronger, hopeful or encouraged. Lots of people in Nepal are still siting in those parks – feeling hungry, thirsty, cold and helpless. And the monsoon season is around the corner.
I am not sure why I deserved to continue living. Most of the people there weren't that lucky. Those who survived lost almost everything they had within one minute. Since I was a part of it, I'm going to try and do my best to spread awareness about this situation.
We will need a lot of help from generous donors to get the basic necessities such as food, water, medicine, blankets, etc. to those who most need it right now. The country is in a state of emergency and there is a lot of need on the ground!
Please, consider skipping your morning coffee tomorrow! Just one cigarette pack maybe! Or that shirt you saw in the shop window!

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.
