In response to the earthquakes in Nepal we are preparing a second air shipment of 50 tents and 50 Disaster Aid kits to our partner in Nepal. This follows the shipment of 30 Disaster Aid kits, 30 large tents and 30 water filters which left from Vancouver by air-shipment on May 11th. Our partner, NCM Nepal has been given responsibility for two remote villages with about 1000 people each that have been affected by the earthquakes. Cost of each of these kits is $750 including air transport. Please use our “Donate” button to support this cause. Designate your gift “Nepal”. A posting by Disaster Aid Canada about the first shipment can be found here.
A recent newsletter from Korle Bu Neroscience Foundation about our Liberia shipments can be found here.
