The team at Auto & General insurance has set up a Disaster Relief Fund to help remote communities in Nepal following the terrible earthquakes which struck the country on 25 April and 12 May 2015. Some of our staff have a personal connection to Nepal, while many others simply want to help in whatever way they can.
We have identified the best way for our staff and friends to contribute is through partnering with the Nepal Australia Friendship Association (NAFA) to help rebuild lost infrastructure, particularly around schools.
NAFA is a Brisbane based non-profit organisation with a proven track record over 26 years in supporting sustainable, grass roots community development projects in Nepal.
NAFA’s focus is on health, education and the environment, with an emphasis on remote villages and families who are particularly disadvantaged. For more information on NAFA activities contact www.nafa.org.au
USE OF FUNDS RAISED
Givematcher has set NAFA a 0% rate. This means all your donation goes to Nepal (exc credit card fee).
Funds will be used to rebuild or repair classrooms previously funded by NAFA in villages located in the Solu Khumbu, Okhaldhunga (including the school at Chhermading) or Sindulpulchowk districts, all severely damaged or destroyed by the earthquakes.
NAFA executive officers will visit Nepal at their own expense after the end of the monsoon season to ensure the funds are used as intended…
