CIES Launches Help Nepal Campaign

Here at CIES we are truly an international family. It is for this reason that we hold a heavy heart today with the news out of Nepal. Many of students here at CIES are Nepalese and we offer out deepest condolences and all our hope. Our very own Suman Khanal, the CIES Settlement Services and Facilities Operations Manager, was born and raised in Nepal. His family was luckily spared but like so many now find themselves without a home.

As of this morning, more than 3,200 people were confirmed dead after Saturday’s 7.8 magnitude quake - the tiny mountain nation's worst in roughly 80 years.  The quake tore through a broad swath of Nepal, damaging the historic heart of Kathmandu, flattening remote villages and triggering an avalanche on Mount Everest.

We will be setting out donation boxes for victims of the tragedy in both our SE and NE location, with no donation being too small. CIES has also set of an online campaign simply titled "Help Nepal" where donations of any size or currency can be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Please click here to donate now, or donate directly at either of our locations. If you want to know what else you can do to help Nepal, contact Suman

Help us Help Nepal.
