Nepal Earthquake – Call for Help

Dear All,

As you all must have known, a massive earthquake of magnitude 7.8 struck our Country Nepal followed by hundreds of aftershocks. Authorities report deaths of 5429, ten thousands of people are injured and millions people are affected (at the time of writing). These counts are expected to rise sharply. The damage to the property is still to be calculated and certainly will be huge which our Country will take decades to overcome.

We were cut off from electricity, internet so we could not connect to our users. Once we checked our mails, we have been getting mails from our users, well wishers wanting to know if we were okay and how they could help us. Our ThemeGrill team is all fine but buildings where we work is partially damaged so it will take some days till we get back to our normal working environment. What we also know from tracking events in natural disasters all over the world is that the situation only gets worse in the weeks following the event, as hospitals become overwhelmed, basic supplies become scarce and those living in temporary shelters succumb to exposure and disease. People will need considerable support including food, water, medical care and emergency shelter.

So, if you are willing to help you can donate via this page http://leadnepal.com/earthquake/. This group will keep everything transparent, you can view the doc Transparent Earthquake Relief Fund Management (Details of the fund collection and expenses).

We ourselves will to be donating to the same organizations and helping out in all possible ways.
Also, if you have donated please comment below with your name and amount donated. We will be updating this article time to time with all names and donation amount. This will also help to track the amount of donation collected and check if they are utilized properly. Every small amount donated can make a difference.

Thank you all for your support.

    Hi, Sanjip Shah

    I am willing to donate for this cause. Unfortunately, my only debit card isn’t accepted by PayPal. So, is there any other way to donate with my debit card?

      Hi,
      Firstly, thanks for your willingness to help. I currently do not know other ways to donate via your debit card. However, you could try other ways to transfer funds: direct back transfer or via western union money transfer like mentioned in this page http://leadnepal.com/earthquake/.

    pppdog… your English is fine and good enough to get your point across. It is hard to believe that they have been hit with a 2nd major earthquake.
    I can only hope that the people of Nepal and Kathmandu continue their resilience to make it through. Countries all over the world are there to help and trying to get as many supplies as possible as quickly as possible to everyone. Hang in there… It will get better!!
