Imagine...

Imagine having the only house in the village deemed inhabitable.
Imagine having lost all you own and most of your friends and family.
Imagine watching the Aid trucks speed past, not stopping at your village.
Imagine people with nothing turning up to help, as they know not else what you do.
Imagine having no access to water. Or to clean water.


What happened in Nepal is beyond comprehension.
And yet it happened.

Massive work needs to be done, just to help the survivors survive.
It is a call on all humanity to chip in where possible.

Send money, or if you see the boxes in businesses, send clothing and blankets.

Medecins Sans Frontiers have teams on the ground and sending more - Donate here
Oxfam already had teams on the ground, working on poverty and other issues. These are now being redirected. Donate here
Redcross is working on rescue as well as helping the survivors. Donate here.

Or donate to another charity with people on the ground. Many are listed here.



There are plenty of fundraising events going on around town:

Lentil As Anything in Newtown has a fund raising dinner on the 6th of May.

Sydney Tafe is hosting a fundraiser on the 6th of May from 2pm.

The Oz Fuss Café and Restaurant at 121 Enmore Rd, Newtown has boxes out the front for donations (raising money and collecting clothes, shoes and blankets).

Bauhaus W at 163 Enmore Rd, Enmore are donating this week's takings to help the efforts in Nepal, so if you haven't been there yet, now's the time!


Please add fundraisers or places to donate in the comments.
Together, we can make a difference for people enduring what we can't imagine.

Linking up with Essentially Jess for IBOT (Sorry, I went a little early with this, but I wanted as much exposure as possible - please forgive me, I haven't forgotten the rules!)

Note I have no affiliation with any of the above charities or events. I just found their details on the net.

  2. It is very overwhelming thinking about the devastation. I can't imagine how bad it really is. Most of the major charities have sent out pleas for increased assistance. I am connected to MSF and UNICEF and hope that the money I give them gets to some of the people in need. My local yoga place in Perth 'Home of Yoga' is hosting a lunch at a local Nepalese restaurant with all proceeds going to the people of Nepal. You can like them on FB for details if any of your readers are local to Perth.

  4. It's so wonderful to see everyone coming together and helping out. I can't imagine what these poor people are going through, but it gives such faith in humanity to see all the support, love and giving out there too.

  6. I can't even fathom a tragedy of this scale.

  7. The tragedy is just beyond comprehension. I watched a bit of the segment Sunday did and I was appalled when they said people were going in to help just so they could steal and then sell artefacts.
