Thanks To BC Sikh Community!

The BC Sikh community helped raise nearly $180,000 for the victims of the devastating earthquake in Neptal. A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25 which has led to the already staggering number of over 8,000 deaths. Many of our friends and families have lost their lives or got injured and hundreds of thousand homes have been destroyed. Surrey Sikh community Radiothons helped to raise the money that is now to help victims in Nepal. Nepal Heritage Charity Foundation of BC (NHCF) quickly teamed up with the local community groups and volunteers in Nepal and started distributing relief materials to the earthquake victims. On Monday May 4, 2015, the first relief team reached two villages in Kavre district, one of the worst hit areas.
