Earthquake: Nepal and bordering countries
The news of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal and bordering countries will have reached so many of us. The reportage of the thousands of fatalities, injured and the graphic images on TV and the social media will have touched the hearts of so many around the world. Words fail to express the utter sadness and grief felt by the survivors.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and Rigul Trust have been asked to help a village in a very remote region of Nepal, near the Tibetan border and which is only accessible by helicopter. There are 200 nuns and staff in urgent need of shelter, food and medicines. The monastery and nunnery there has been completely destroyed by the earthquake.
Some nuns were buried under the rubble, some were injured and one died. The cost of hiring a helicopter is very expensive and only takes 4 people. We want to help them to rebuild their community in this emergency situation.
The monsoon rains will be arriving within the next few weeks and urgent need is to get provisions, tents, sheds, food and medicines to them, and any help you can give will be of such great benefit.
