HATTIESBURG, Miss.–The Nepal earthquake killed about 4,000 people and injured thousands more. Mississippi is finding ways to help. The Red Cross is encouraging you to give, while some Southern Miss students with a connection to Nepal are raising awareness.
Khem Raj BC and Pradip Bastola, along with their fellow students and members of the Hattiesburg Nepali Society, have established a gofundme account to help with donations through social media, and are providing contact information for other relief agencies assisting the people of Nepal, said a release from USM.
“We request the support of the Southern Miss and Hattiesburg communities in our efforts to secure relief for Nepal,” Khem Raj BC said. “The families of USM Nepalese students are safe, but some have lost their homes in the earthquake. Any support will be greatly appreciated and help our country and its people recover from this disaster.”
