UPDATE: Kirtan Aid Live: Nepal Earthquake Relief has raised more than $36,000 to fund rebuilding efforts in Nepal.
The terrible earthquake in Nepal has devastated an entire country.
Homes have crumbled to the ground. Roads have become impassable. Entire villages have no access to food, shelter, water or medicine.
The numbers are staggering; thousands and thousands of people killed, tens of thousands more injured, and hundreds of thousands of homes destroyed. Nearly 1 million children now lack access to basic needs and 8 million people’s lives are impacted by this tragedy, so far.
Nepal is one of the homelands of the yogic tradition, and its time to take care of the people whose culture has so richly nourished ours. The Sat Nam Foundation is funding groups on the ground bringing supplies and support to the hardest hit areas of Nepal.
We are working with our friends at Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home, the site of our last Seva project, who are organizing tents and supplies to be hiked in to some of the most remote regions where aid isn’t already getting in.
We are also working with The Divine Shakti Foundation, headed by leaders of Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, India, who are organizing large truckloads to take desperately needed aid into Nepal.
They are sending food, tents, lanterns, blankets, clothing, insect repellent and medical supplies. Lives are being saved with each delivery.
Sat Nam Foundation has created a new album called “Kirtan Aid Live: Nepal Earthquake Relief” to raise money for these incredible projects in Nepal.
