6,000 people have lost their lives, thousands more injured & homeless. 5 days after they are finding people in the rubble. Master Tamang is co-ordinating urgent care, supplies & support to the local community. We need your help in getting funds there fast

Thank-you so much for stopping to read this urgent appeal.

You will have seen the footage and know of the devastation the Earthquake has caused in Nepal.

We've set this page up to specifically help a local Dojo in Nepal get direct support out to the people that are waiting for help right now. We can do this fast, which is why we've created this.

Make shift homes

I'm (Master) Annette Khepri and I'm helping to set up this campaign with and to help a friend Master Tamang and his community in Nepal who were personally in the Earthquake.

Although I've sent funds through to UNICEF and there are many amazing charities out there doing incredible work and you may have already supported them too, there is something really amazing you could do right now to help.

After hearing the really sad story from Master Jit Bahadur Tamang of what happened and how difficult it was for any aid to get through, the people suffering out in the streets and the enormity of the whole thing. We decided we could take some localised action.

Master Tamang has a Dojo there the Nepal Hapkido Martial Arts Association and Veer Gokhaj Organsition and he is part of the Social Welfare Council there in Nepal, he told me of the frightening scenes, the impact and the very sad loss of some of his own relatives. Their homes wiped out and they are left with very little.

Where they are, aid is taking time to get through. People need urgent help and support and Master Tamang is using his Dojo as a co-ordination centre to give direct hands on support to those people that need it most.

One difficulty is the injured people trying to get medical support and out to the hospitals which are struggling to treat people.

The impact of the Earthquake

Master Tamang has sent us pictures and will keep everyone up to date on exactly how and where the money raised is being spent and who you are helping. This is a way you can take instant, direct action and make a difference that you will be able to keep up to date with.

You'll see we created a special Facebook page for the community to come together and take some direct action (in addition to any you might have already done).

Every single charity, person and official carrying out their duty out there could use extra help and support.

I will be posting up pictures as they come in and please come and connect and be a part of the relief effort making a local, immediate and hands on difference.

This is where Black Belts, Martial Arts and People can join together and make an impact. Today.

We need your urgent help, so please can you:

1. Donate whatever you can, every $10's helps - thank-you!

2. Please share the links for the pages (this FundRazr one and the Facebook page)

3. Like the Facebook page and check the notifications box so you can keep posted. As you know this won't be an overnight 'fix', this is going to take time.

Finally, if anyone wants to get involved, help and support please do get in touch with me. I am no expert at this, I am simply a Black Belt and a person that wants to help, just like you.

I am putting a call out to the Martial Arts community in the first instance on this but it's far more than that, it's for anyone that wants to help make a difference, show their support and remember ever $10's will make a difference.

So please, give whatever you can, share the page and let's help Master Tamang's Dojo help those people that are in dire need of our help right now.

Thank-you so much for your support and generosity it is so gratefully appreciated.

The campaign is set to 30 days, so please let's see what we can do!

Many blessings to you and thank-you for your support.

Co-ordinating help

Please note: your funds will be collected by Black Belt Thinking (as we include social change in our work) and are being transferred to the Dojo in Nepal. In the spirit of transparency, you will be able to see the running totals on this page and we will be showing images of all payments and transactions and where the money is going so you can watch the progress of the campaign and exactly how you are directly helping.

If you have any questions or want to help please do get in touch with me. Thank-you.
