Nepali student at AMREP appeals for earthquake relief

I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for coming together to support the cause in Nepal with AUD 2392.06 already collected. I am truly grateful for your generosity. It is because of your kind contributions that the hope for a better Nepal keeps afloat in our hearts amidst the tragedy. The latest tragedy being that another 7.4 quake has struck the people of my country this Tuesday (12th May), just over two weeks post the 25th April quake.

The tremors are ongoing and we are all hoping and praying for it to end. There have been more damages to lives and property mainly because the quake triggered multiple landslides that swept off villages in the east of Nepal. There have been unbelievable footages and images of destruction showing the violent movement of whole mountains – the fiercest wrath of nature that I have ever witnessed. See video 1 and video 2.

Despite the chain of aftershocks and tremors, the hopeful spirit and resilience of the people have lived on. Surely, it has left everyone scared and nervous but despite this, people are going out of their way to help each other. Nepal has finally seen a strong bond of unity to rebuild a better country that will live on for generations to come. We have all been given an opportunity to appreciate the love from our families and treasure the value of our lives to contribute to a better and brighter future.

Overall, the feeling is mixed. We have been broken but we are learning to rise, we have been left scared but we are learning to persevere, we have been made homeless but we are trying to rebuild. If you would like to contribute to alleviate this struggle of Nepal, you can still donate here. The ongoing tremors are seriously complicating government’s rescue efforts in the remote villages, so your donations will really help local NGOs work harder to reach these areas and help those in need.

Thank you once again for your contributions. You have definitely made a big difference to help ease the pain of those suffering in Nepal.


My original story for starting this campaign is below.

Dear AMREP friends and colleagues,

My name is Sewa Rijal and I am a Monash PhD student at Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP). Nepal, my beloved home country, was recently struck by a massive 7.9 earthquake causing a terrible loss of life and leaving millions of survivors without proper shelter, food and water. It has been a week since the incident and I am still unable to sleep at night. Being so far away, I feel utterly helpless, combined with a sense of guilt, because I am OK when others in my country are suffering so much.
