3 months ago we have started to provide Nepalese families in need with food packages. Due to your support we were able to already organize five food distributions in the Communities of Boudhanath, Patan, Suntakhan, Bhaktapur and Changunarayan in order help families go through these difficult times. Thank you all who have helped starting the #HopeForNepal campaign for your support and your donations.
However times are not getting easier for Nepal.
Again the country is under strict lockdown to combat COVID 19 and the daily life of people, especially of those in need, is getting more and more difficult. The COVID 19 cases are rising in Nepal, requests for food have increased dramatically during the last weeks.
Therefore cooperating with reliable partners is especially important to cope with the challenges during Corona Crisis. In order to expand our food distribution activities, Long Yang e.V. has looked for further opportunities in order to do so.
Double effort – double impact
We are happy to have found excellent support in a co-funding cooperation with doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation (dHHF). Thanks to the cooperation our #HopeforNepal Project has the opportunity to reach out for even more families in need. The project has been accepted as one of the Foundations Projects in the area of Disaster Relief and Global Health. All donations that will be collected by Long Yang e.V. during the next 28 days will be doubled by the Foundation.
From Sept 2 til Oct 1, 2020 we invite you to participate in an exciting challenge. We are aiming for 7.500 US-Dollar and doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation will match your donations, so that #HopeforNepal can have twice the impact.
All donations will be collected and doubled by the Foundation up to 7.500 Dollar- so there will be upt o 15.000 Dollar in total to support!
Close Connection with Nepal
The Foundation belongs to doTERRA International, an integrative health and wellness company, known for its high-quality Aromatherapy and Essential Oils, is closely connected with the Himalayan Country. After the earthquake in Nepal 2015, doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation provided immediate help through a matching contribution campaign with the result of almost $636,000.00 to rebuild Nepalese villages. Furthermore the company created jobs for Wintergreen and Spikenard growers and harvesters in Nepal and has empowered communities with water projects and buildings such as earthquake-resilient schools and hospitals.
