Nepal Earthquake Appeal

A ShelterBox response team has arrived in Nepal to see how they can be of assistance following an earthquake measuring 7.8 in magnitude.
 
The quake occurred between the major cities of Kathmandu and Pokhara, with tremors felt as far away as Delhi in India. More than 4000 people are reported to have died following the earthquake, while there is extensive damage to homes and buildings in Kathmandu, nothing yet is clear about the devastation in the remote areas. 
We already have aid, including tents, prepositioned in the country, which could be used as emergency clinics, as well as shelters in the immediate aftermath. In addition, ShelterBox has dispatched 500 Shelter kits and they will wait to hear from the assessment team what is required. The link attached will give you a good insight into what Rotary and ShelterBox are trying to achieve in Nepal: www.shelterbox.org/news_global.php?id=1349
 
As you know, ShelterBox has recently been working in-country after the recent land-slides and is in talks with several aid agencies and Rotary contacts based in Nepal to see where we can help.
 
We would be grateful for your help in distributing the attached copy to your friends and Club members.

About the Author:

Danny de Hek

Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
