Nepal is a poor country, made even poorer by the earthquakes and aftershocks from April 2015. The effects have been long term, with hundreds of thousands of families still living in temporary shelters. Now these victims need permanent earthquake proof housing, in an effort to rebuild their lives. SHIVA Charity is part of that effort. Please help us with a donation, however small. One UK pound will produce 2 big 10 by 10 inch interlocking bricks. 1200 bricks will build a small home. The complete house with furniture will cost 4000 GB pounds only. Please consider raising funds with "just giving" by pressing the red "Raise Funds" button!
SHIVA CHARITY (UK), ESTABLISHED IN 1995 TO PROMOTE EDUCATION IN NEPAL AND SRI LANKA, AND TO RELIEVE THE POOR FROM DISTRESS. WE ARE A CHARITY OF ACTION, NOT JUST WORDS.
