I target to raise as much as possible for Nepal Earthquake Relief Programme.
The earthquake in Nepal in last April, at a magnitude of 8.1, destroyed nearly 90% of the buildings in Kathmandu, the epicenter, and killed close to 10 thousand people.
Outside Kathmandu, the earthquake almost destroyed the entire villages of Patlekhet and Gundu. Houses collapsed or were seriously destroyed. The two organisations we are racing to help are Hasera Farm, located inside Patlekhet, which promotes Permaculture education in Nepal, and Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop, in Gundu, where villagers work with organic shop Kheti Bazaar in forest restoration and promoting sustainable farming. At the moment, villagers have nothing safe to live in except temporary shelters.
Although the Nepal government directly oversee international aid funds and donations, it is still unclear whether the needed money would reach specific victims.
Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop and Kheti Bazaar wish all the funds raised can go directly into victims' hands. They have worked out what to rebuild, looked at their actual needs, while, at the same time pay specific respect to the value of harmony with nature and sustainable development. They plan to rebuild the 2 villages in 2 years, beginning with safe and comfortable temporary houses which villagers can live in for 1 to 2 years, while subsequently rebuilding permanent houses. For the temporary houses, they have identified a cost-effective method using bamboo. After the permanent homes are built, existing temporary homes would be used for food storage or animal shelters. After the permanent homes are built, existing temporary homes would be used for food storage or animal shelters.
Oneness and Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop and Kheti Bazaar together have the same belief. We all believe in sustainability and independence. While helping the others, we are also protecting our home and land. Only through sustainable rebuilding can our lives be sustainable. Close or apart, we are one.
We are not deducting any cost. All the income will be donated. Please come and support.
To ensure transparency, Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop would update their news and funding use on their Facebook page every 2 weeks. Nepal earthquake rebuilding Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1445922629057972/
We are a joint volunteer effort of different individuals, artists of many different disciplines and organisations including many Green Living organizations.

LEE KAI HO mini photo exhibition (https://vimeo.com/leekaiho)
Lee Kai Ho went to Nepal in March for business, and, while there, took a series of photographs. Through the lens, he gained profound experiences from the people and happenings. One month afterwards, news of the Earthquake hit him with mixed emotions. Thereafter, he decided to share captured images of Nepal, and, through the charity sales of the photos, also give a helping hand to his Nepalese friends.
