YMCA SUPPORTS NEPAL.  FUNDRAISING APPEAL NOW OPEN.

The YMCA worldwide family is standing in support of the Nepal YMCA and all those affected by the earthquake that struck Nepal and surrounding countries.

A fundraising appeal is now open. Donations can be made to support Nepal YMCA. DONATE NOW – Click Here

The Appeal will support the relief and rehabilitation work done by Nepal YMCA.

The 7.9 earthquake struck Kathmandhu where the Nepal YMCA is based. Muktinath Acharya, National General Secretary of Nepal YMCA, and his family are safe. They are currently without electricity and cannot live in their home in the YMCA School & Orphanage building for fear of aftershocks. The extent of the damage to the YMCA building is not fully known. Muktinath did see that the water tank in the upper floor of the building had collapsed.

Secretary General of the World YMCA, Rev. Johan Vilhelm Eltvik, expressed the YMCAs solidarity:  “Our thoughts and prayers are with our friends in Nepal, hit by an earth quake on the strength of 7.9 and with 4500 estimated victims so far. We stand with you with lots of compassion and prayers.” Messages of prayer and support have also been shared from the YMCA family from around the globe.  

We ask you to please support Nepal YMCA at this time through this joint appeal of the Asia Pacific Alliance of YMCAs, Y Care International and the World Alliance of YMCAs. As more details emerge about their situation and needs we will update this post. We know that the YMCA family rallies behind each other in these emergencies and we seek your support.
