Nederlands (English version below): Help ons bij het verstrekken van humanitaire steun aan Nepal:
Op 31 maart 2019 werd Nepal getroffen door een hevige regenbui. De effecten hiervan zijn grootschalig zichtbaar en meerdere dorpen ten zuiden van Kathmandu zijn verwoest. De lokale bevolking heeft dringend basisbenodigdheden, medische zorg, onderdak en voedsel nodig.
GHRD Nepal heeft een team van artsen paraat die momenteel worden ingezet. Om zo snel en effectief mogelijk op deze crisis te reageren, hebben zij extra medicijnen en medische hulpmiddelen nodig. Daarnaast is er een tekort aan voedsel, kleding, en schoon water voor de bevolking in de getroffen gebieden.
Help ons bij het ophalen van € 3000, zodat GHRD Nepal de getroffen gebieden kan voorzien van gepaste zorg, voedsel, water en kleding.

English: Help us to provide humanitarain aid to Nepal:
Nepal was struck by a heavy rainstorm during the night of the 31 March 2019. Concrete numbers are yet to be revealed, but news agencies estimate that there are at least 31 deaths and 400 injuries. These numbers are only expected to rise during the coming days. The storm has hit multiple villages to the south of Kathmandu, leaving a trail of destruction. Currently, both the army as well as the national police are trying to rescue as many people as possible. As people are injured and houses and land have been destroyed, there is an urgent need for medical care as well as food, clothes, clean water and shelter.
It is for this reason that GHRD has started this fundraising campaign. GHRD Nepal has a group of doctors available who need supplies and medicine to respond to this crisis as rapidly and effectively as possible. Additionally, food, clothes, clean water and shelter necessary for survival needs to be provided to the affected areas. As GHRD Nepal is locally active, they are capable to indicate what is specifically needed in order to help as adequately as possible. The money will thus be directly used and allocated to where it is most needed.
As this crisis happened very recently and is affecting such a large group of people and their daily lives, aid is needed as soon as possible. This to save lives as well as repair the destruction.
GHRD has now set their goal on 3000€, which is based on a calculation of the total cost of the most basic medical supplies, food and clothes needed in the affected area. Of course, as the number of injuries continues to rise, the more we raise the more we can be of help.
