TPRF supports recovery from flood devastation in Nepal
The devastation caused by recent floods in South Asia has affected millions of people in this region. This includes Nepal, where almost two million people have been affected, and almost one fifth of those displaced. The floods have caused irreplaceable damage to many regions in Nepal and much of the affected area remains inaccessible. Over 1,000 people have lost their lives.
Nepal is a country in which The Prem Rawat Foundation has been working for a number of years to deliver one of its flagship programmes, Food for People. Since it began delivering daily meals for those most in need in the country, TPRF has supported more than 2,000 people and continues to deliver its vision of nutritious food as a basic human right for all.
In response to the recent devastation in Nepal, The Prem Rawat Foundation has been working with its long term partner, Premsagar Foundation Nepal, to ensure that aid is reaching Nepalese people who need it the most. As the flooding is likely to intensify food shortages, the charity is working to deliver food to those impacted.
TPRF has long supported regions affected by natural disasters by working closely with charities on the ground to deliver essential relief. In recent months, this has also included providing support in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
So far in this period donations from TPRF to partner charities on the ground have totalled more than 40,000 dollars, with charitable donations from TPRF supporters helping to double that amount, to ensure that aid is ongoing and widely distributed to all areas in need..
