Nepalese Earthquake Appeal
Tandrang Gorkha

The small village of Tandrang Gorkha has been demolished, along with many others, due to the earthquake. The village's population of 4,368 is now without housing and possessions: nearly all 838 houses are gone. Our colleague Bishnu Lamichhane's mother and three brothers and their families are now without housing. Please help to assist his family and the entire village by donating; all immediate money will help with tents, food and clothing, and anything further will help them rebuild in the near future.
