2015 NEPAL EARTHQUAKE
Earthquake Hits Nepal, one of the poorest Nations in the World
Homelessness and Despair as the death toll increasesGrieving, cold and homeless, thousands of vulnerable families have been traumatised by the deadliest earthquake that has hit Nepal in 80 years. Whole villages have been destroyed and countless poor have been left without shelter, water and medical supplies.

Assistance by larger NGO's is underway to rescue thousands in the Katmandu and Pokhara areas of Nepal, but many remote villages in the mountainous and hilly areas with disperse rural populations will not receive immediate emergency assistance until, in all probability, it is too late.

Tents4Peace, a reputable and award winning Australian grass roots organisation, has a proven track record for effectiveness and fast life-saving service to remote and sometimes inaccessible areas.

NEWS UPDATE:
To date we have raised enough funds to supply over 1000 kits and delivered them to remote parts of Nepal.

The first two convoys delivered on behalf of Tents for Peace are one led by Dechen, a Tibetan woman and The Neydo Monastery, and the other by Samtenla Sherpa. These were the easier convoys. the next two are into very remote areas that will take days to get there and return.

We are endeavouring to join forces with over thirty porters who have collaborated to take a big convoy into the most remote part of the Manaslu and Gorkha Regions check points and scouting areas from Lorpak. These areas are as remote as you can get and consist of rural marginalised farmers and huge number of Dalits (untouchables) who subsist at the best of times. We want to raise another $20,000 for this.

These porters wait for instructions by one of Dechens team.

What is not being said is that the coming monsoon (late May to first week in June) will destroy trekking routes and paths, making it lethal for the porters to get through, leaving the sick, aged and children living in these areas caught in and unable to receive life-giving assistance.

We have EMERGENCY KITS for $100. A kit consists of a six person tent, blanket/s, medical kit, water purifying tablets, light stove with fuel, matches and torch plus some warm clothing and one weeks supply of rice.
