Get Us to Help Nepal on Your Behalf
I FEEL THE URGENCY, CAN’T YOU ?
In the wake the Nepalese earthquake where more than 7000 casualties have been censused and more than 3 million people are left homeless or deprived of basic health support, and following the steps of local social workers, I am planning to fly to Nepal for 3-4 weeks, to offer my humble assistance. I am intimately convinced that even the smallest contribution counts.
I want to be there for 5 reasons :
- FOR SANITARY RELIEF
We all know that, after such death toll, the major risks in these devastated areas are mainly linked to diseases related to unclean atmosphere and sanitary conditions. That is why I am planning to bring along vaccine doses, water-purifying pills, diagnostics equipment and basic sanitary family packs, especially targeting children and elders.
- BECAUSE HELPING HANDS MATTERS MUCH MORE THAN THE MONEY
I believe that physical presence is far better than pouring money into a bank account.
- FOR SOLIDARITY
Beyond showing dedication to a distressed population, I want to strengthen the Mauritian presence and give a helping hand to my compatriots who are on spot.
- FOR REMEMBRANCE SAKE
I want to produce a 52-minute filmed report of the humanitarian action there, from a Mauritian social worker’s perspective.
- FOR REPORTING AS HUMANITARIAN ACTION UNFOLDS
I want to produce a daily one-hour live streamed webradio show on Radio Lepep.
I am doing needful to contact various companies and set up the contingency cargo (medicine, water-purifying pills, medikit/ Hygiene packs for at least 100 families).
I therefore, appeal to your generosity and compassion relatively to the Nepalese People’s ordeal. Knowing their incapacity at coping alone with the disastrous situation, I wish to bring my part into the relief process and along with me, your participation, as a friend, a social network connection or as a simple global citizen who cares.
The total amount for such a project amounts to USD 5800 (~ Rs 200,000), air fare (USD 818) inclusive, Contingency Cargo excluded. Thanks to send your contribution in form of a minimum USD 30 pledge to be redeemed after the official announcement of my departure, by local press, after the contingency cargo will have been all set.
Due to the urgent nature of the mission, thanks to make your pledge within the next 72 hours.
Departure has been planned for May 20, from Mauritius, over for a one-stop 17-hr trip (Delhi). If you wish to be part of the trip, just let me know.
As for any Crowdfunded campaign, there is a token of gratitude for all you who will have pledged in, Your contribution will be celebrated, in the form of a participation certificate and your name being listed on the credits screen of the 52-minute film that will be outputed from the mission (subject to your anonymity status on your pledge form ! You can opt to be an anonymous donor or not).
