Chabad Nepal at the forefront of relief

  • Chabad House Logo
In the wake of the devastating earthquake, Chabad in Nepal has taken a lead in relief efforts. Thousands have lost their lives. Many are still missing; buildings and homes stand in ruin.
by CHABAD CORRESPONDENT | May 05, 2015

In a media release, Chabad said this week that its emissaries in Nepal, Rabbi Chezki and Chanie Lipshitz, are “at the forefront of emergency relief and have launched an effort to relieve suffering.”

“The Chabad House has become a refuge for hundreds of Israeli backpackers and Chabad is reaching out to the broader community with humanitarian aid. They are the only Jewish presence in Nepal.”

Chabad has appealed for funds to help it in its mammoth task and a page has been set up on the Chabad.org platform at www.chabad.org/Nepal. Alternatively you can also make a donation to the Miracle Drive Trust and Chabad South Africa will apply to the Reserve Bank for permission to send all donations to Nepal.

For more information contact Rabbi David Masinter, director of Chabad Johannesburg. Your donation is tax-deductible and all funds will go directly to provide humanitarian relief in Nepal.”

Donation may be made to Standard Bank: Sandton, account number 022723218, branch code 051001, reference: Nepal Relief.
