Namaste Nepal!

Join us for heart-centred yoga and loving kindness meditation in support of relief and reconstruction in Nepal, home of the birthplace of Siddharta Gautama, the Buddha.

Nepal has been affected by two major earthquakes and nearly 100 lesser earthquakes since 25 April, and over 8,000 people have died with over 20,000 injured. Hundreds of thousands are without a home or access to safe drinking water, and there is a real risk of serious diseases such as Typhoid Fever due to poor hygiene.

Participation is by minimum 30 EURO donation (please bring proof of donation) – Please book in advance at susan.hopkinson@me.com

To Karuna Shechen http://karuna-shechen.org/how-to-help/

OR to another charitable organisation of your preference working in Nepal

From Karuna Shechen:
All donations received over the 31st of May 2015 will be directed towards our relief efforts to help earthquake victims in Nepal.

Another major earthquake has struck Nepal on Tuesday May 12, just two weeks after the quake that already claimed thousands of lives, injured many more and caused widespread devastation.

Thanks to your generous donations and continuous support, Karuna-Shechen is bringing essential lifesaving medical care and relief aid (food and shelter) to thousands of people in remote villages in districts affected by the earthquake.

Our work is just beginning: we are going to help the victims of this new disaster and continue helping survivors.

Many survivors have lost everything: their home, personal possessions, and food reserves. Entire villages have been reduced to piles of rubble. Families, including young children, are now sleeping outside in very cold mountainous temperatures.

Many people have already fallen sick due to lack of proper shelter, food, and clean drinking water. To add to this tragedy, monsoon season will start in a few weeks, bringing with it torrential rains.

As this new tragedy strikes Nepal, your support is needed more than ever to save lives and help rebuild communities and families for the long-term.
