“Nepal Earthquake Victims Relief Fund”

Jai Jinendra.

The under-privileged nation of Nepal was faced with destruction and devastation, earlier this week. On April 25th, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck an area between Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara in Nepal.  More than 2,300 people were killed in that what is being considered the worst earthquake in 80 years. 

JAINA World Community Service (WCS) is launching a fund for the victims of this unfathomable tragedy and ask the Jains of North America to contribute.  The funds will be used for a humanitarian project that will be selected & executed against once the relief operations ends and rehabilitation work begins. 

As done in the past, WCS always gets involved and provides a helping hand whenever and wherever a disaster strikes. Our volunteers work directly in the affected area to deliver aid, keeping in mind Jain principles. Our efforts are always directed towards projects with long term benefits like building a school, hospital, housing or a rehabilitation center.

Previously, with your support, we have raised over $50,000 for Haiti Earthquake $200,000 for the Tsunami victims, and $750,000 for the Gujarat earthquake. Jains in North America have always shown our generosity all over the world, as steadfast believers of “Jiv Daya” and “Ahimsa.

We recognize that various organizations have started similar relief funds and you may wonder why you should send your donations through JAINA: 

 

  • JAINA does not charge any administrative fee to the relief fund. 100% of the donations will go towards relief effort. In fact, JAINA volunteers and partners will volunteer their time and experience to the cause.
  • Funds collected by JAINA will be spent in a completely non-violent manner keeping in mind the Jain way. 

We request you to send your tax deductible (USA) contribution payable to JAINA, at the above address or donate online: www.jaina.org/donations.
