Recovering from the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25 will take years in that poor country where millions of people live in remote, isolated villages and where government and infrastructure is lacking.
Rose Charities Canada has been spearheading immediate disaster relief, see right.
Rose Charities NZ Trustees are in close contact with their many friends in Nepal. We are determined to do what we can to be most effective with our limited resources.
There are many aid agencies offering support. Rose Charities NZ endorses the work of the Himalayan Trust of New Zealand whose work is a legacy from Sir Edmund Hillary. The Himalayan Trusts’ efforts are particularly concentrated in the Solu Khumbu region, on the way to Mt Everest east of Kathmandu.
A couple who live in Kathmandu who are well known to Rose chairperson Trish Gribben, Nima and Tsewang Tsering are setting up a charity to help children in need to get primary education and to give ongoing support through to secondary and tertiary education. Tsewang is an experienced teacher. It will take a few weeks for their charity to be registered.
