Tilganga Earthquake Relief Support Funds Activates

As the death toll mounts to more than 5,000 following Saturday’s tragedy. The entire staff of Tilganga started relief operations with an enthusiasm I have never seen in them before. We have decided that it will take a long time and we need to run it professionally and effectively in the same the way as we have been conducting sigh restoration programs. This tragedy has left thousands of people homeless, helpless and broken. We have vowed to be part of their healing process with the help of our international partners.

As of today morning, we have packed food and relief materials, emergency medical kits enough for thousand families with the team led by Dr.Suman Thapa, Khim Gurung and Krishna Gopal. They are already in Melamchi, Sindhupalchowk District, one of the worst affected areas. A similar group of medical team with supplies hopefully,will be leaving each day to different destinations, provided we get enough financial resources. Besides this, if we have substantial financial resources, we may even be able to reach out to very remote areas via helicopter.
