$16,005 and counting…

Help us send funds to Nepal this week.

The Bo M. Karlsson Foundation is fundraising to provide immediate help to earthquake victims in Nepal. BMKF advisor and disaster relief volunteer Prem Shrestha will travel to Kathmandu on Wednesday and take first aid kits with him. Specifically, funds will be used to:

  • Provide emergency blankets, tents, masks, and first-aid supplies to victims in Nepal.
  • Provide portable clean water and food.

What happened?

A devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near Kathmandu City on Saturday morning. More than 2,500 deaths have been confirmed and more than 5,000 people have been injured. Multiple earthquake aids are being employed right now, but the death toll will continue to rise.

Nepal has declared a state of emergency. Numerous homes and most of the historic Kathmandu landmarks have been destroyed, including Dharahara tower. Powerful aftershocks continue to occur. Most people are in the streets because they have lost their homes or they are too afraid to go inside buildings. It is estimated that Nepal will continue to receive aftershocks for next few weeks.

Your contribution will save lives. Every donation, every dollar, will make a huge difference in Nepal and go directly to aid people this week. We will continue to post information on how the fund raised will be used.

Let’s pull together and help Nepal through this tragic event.

The Bo M. Karlsson Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. All funds raised will go directly to support earthquake victims in the next couple days.
