American Himalayan Foundation Appeals for Earthquake Donations

From Norbu Tenzing at the American Himalayan Foundation:

A series of strong earthquakes struck in Yushu, Tibet (Qinghai Province, China) on April 14th, creating disaster in an already struggling region. Most houses and schools have suffered badly, and tens of thousands are homeless in very cold weather.

Although we are still learning the extent of the damage, we want to move as quickly as possible. AHF has worked with the Tibetans in Yushu for over ten years: on education, clean water systems, clinics and bridges. Thankfully, we have learned that our Tibetan partners are alive. But they will need our help immediately.

AHF is now accepting donations through our web site targeted for earthquake relief. 100% of these emergency gifts will go directly to help our partners in Yushu
and, as always, are fully tax-deductible. With our track record - a decade of on the ground experience with the Tibetans in Yushu - we know how to get help to those who need it. But we need your help to be able to do so.

Please make a donation and specify "Tibet Earthquake" in the "Note for AHF."

To donate:

Or call 415 288 7250.
