To assist with humanitarian aid and rebuilding after devastating earthquakes rocked Nepal in April and May, One Global Village made a $2000 donation to assist the monks and nuns at Ka-Nying Sherab Ling in their relief efforts for the victims of the earthquake and for the rebuilding of the monastery.

The abbott of Sherab Ling, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, posted this letter on the monastery website:

“…Here at the monastery, we have all been working very hard to help those suffering to the best of our ability.This is a critical time for all those affected by the earthquake. Currently, thousands of families have no homes to go to and are spending each night huddled in simple tents. Unless homes are rebuilt quickly before the monsoon rains start in a few week’s time, there is the danger of another public health emergency occurring as sanitation conditions deteriorate and diarrheal diseases and possibly typhoid and cholera spread. Let me once again thank everyone who has contributed to these efforts from the bottom of my heart. Your generosity is greatly needed and so warmly appreciated.”

In addition to funds,  OGV also sends prayers and intentions that those who are suffering find relief soon, that much assistance will flow from all over the world, and that the relief efforts will be blessed and protected.
