Our Effort

25 doctors, engineers and volunteers - Gorkha and Sindhupalchoke

The BCCUK is raising funds to provide life-saving aid, emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets to communities across the country. So far we have been able to send over 500 survival boxes, along with a team of 25 doctors, engineers and volunteers who have been on the ground supporting affected communities near the epicenter, Gorkha district and Sindhupalchoke area.

We have also been able to support smaller independent projects.

Ghangyul Village Project

Maya Lama came to our Aldershot Gumba distraught and in disbelief. What can you give someone who has lost her home?

What would you say to comfort someone who lost her Mother, Sister-In-Law and her baby and Mother-In-Law? BCCUK thought best thing to do is to reunite Maya Lama with her surviving family member ( Father and Brother). Thanks to all of you who donated, today Maya Lama has reached her Ghangyul Village with supplies and tents. There is no Banner saying BCCUK because this was combine effort of all of you, Buddhist, non-buddhist, English and Nepalese, every one of you. Thank you all.

I would like to thank, tireless and talented volunteers of NAYA YUVA and HELP Nepal. With out your enthusiasm and dedication it would be very difficult to achieve what we achieved today. Together we can achieve great things.
