On the 6th of June, hundreds of people descended on The Railway Tavern in Tulse Hill for “Knees Up For Nepal”, an innovative fundraising event organised by friends of Our Sansar to help the victims of the devastating earthquakes that tore through Nepal in April and May. Described as an “All Day Party-val”, the day included live bands, DJs, a BBQ, a raffle, hula hooping and cake amongst loads of other fun activities. Over the course of the day, an incredible £3800 was raised towards our Nepal Earthquake Relief fund and we are absolutely astounded by not only the amount raised, but the dedication and support of the event organisers and everyone who attended.
The money raised will go directly towards our work in Nepal; we are currently working to open a shelter for children in the Dhading district of Nepal, one of the areas worst affected by the earthquakes. This money will help us to provide food, shelter, education and counselling to the children, many of whom have tragically lost both their parents.
As a small charity, our friends and supporters are absolutely integral to our success, and without people like those that organised and attended “Knees Up for Nepal”, we simply would not be able to continue our vital work.
We are always looking for amazing individuals to fundraise for us, and there really is no limit to what you can do. Whether you take part in a challenging physical event, run a bake sale or jump out of a plane, we will be extremely grateful for your support and you can rest assured that the money you raise will have a genuinely positive impact on the lives of children in Nepal.
