Why I Support #WeHelpNepal

I was born and raised in Kathmandu.  There is no choice for me but to take action in support of the country I love and the people I care for. Sadly, I have done this before.  In the wake of the 2004 tsunami that claimed my home and many of my friends, I started a grassroots relief organization that grew to encompass 15 villages, 120 projects, and a budget of over $4 million USD. 

I am helping co-create this effort because I trust and believe in the people we will support - we know who they are, and we will figure out how to help them.

So, that's what this effort is about, mutual trust and solidarity based on experience and courage.

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.
