How You Can Help Nepal

nepal crowd funding

We have been blessed to have many close Nepali friends.  As we grieve with them the loss of their homes and many treasured historic sites, we have joined with the Bhuju family, proprietors of Zumi’s Espresso cafe of Ipswich, MA, in matching gifts for Oxfam’s emergency relief work in Nepal.  Oxfam, which has long worked with Nepali partner organizations, is expert at providing clean water, sanitation and shelter — critical needs in disaster zones.  Together with Zumi’s, we will match $12,000 in gifts via the Crowdrise site below for a total of $24,000 for Nepal.   For more information and to donate click here:  https://www.crowdrise.com/search/combined-results/zumis
