The need in Nepal remains urgent nearly a year later. There are still earthquake victims living in tented camps, mostly notably children who lost their parents in the disaster. There are still displaced women and children being targeted by sex traffickers. There are still villages struggling to rebuild, who have received little or no government aid. There are still farmers lacking the seed and the animals needed to produce food. Tourism, the main earner of foreign currency for Nepal, has fallen by 60%, leading to around £195min in lost revenue, which in turn affects over 1 million workers and their families.

Our help for Nepal matters! It will change lives and we must continue the journey, reaching out to people through music to raise funds for our two charities Action Works Nepal & Animal Nepal. Both have been doing great work in the rebuilding of Nepal but they need more resources to support their efforts.

What we'll deliver:

  • empower the poor, vulnerable, and excluded women, children, and men of Nepal
  • improve the conditions for animals in Nepal

Why it's a great idea:

Everything here, and everyone's time, is being donated. This crowdfunder allows you to donate to the two relief charities in Nepal AND be rewarded with gifts given by people from all over the world; some being 'money-can't-buy' rewards for music fans.
