The devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015 has caused the death of over 7,000, injured tens of thousands and rendered millions homeless. The cost of rebuilding has been estimated to exceed USD$5B – a staggering amount for such a poor nation. For the Nepalese people this is the greatest crisis in their lifetime.
CFFN wishes to express its deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives and extent our sympathies to all affected.
CFFN has begun raising funds to help with the aftermath of the earthquake. These funds will be forwarded to the Canadian Red Cross which has been involved in managing relief efforts in Nepal from the beginning.
The three child-care centres currently receiving CFFN support have been spared and will continue to operate.
CFFN will continue to support long term developments in Nepal despite such a staggering setback.
Stay Strong Nepal!
CFFN is pleased to announce that a sum of $2200 was raised through various means and donated to the Canadian Red Cross. With the Canadian government matching the funds, we were able to make $4400 worth of impact in Nepal! We would like to make special mention of Jason Dai and Amanpreet Minhas for their generousity.
