A deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25th April, 2015. The immense quake, the most powerful to hit Nepal in over 80 years, killed more than 6000 and injured more than 15,000. Thousands of villages have been devastated, with up to 90% of clinics and schools in some districts rendered unusable.
Hundreds of thousands of people made homeless by the quake are yet to receive aid because of logistic bottlenecks, poor infrastructure and the lack of sufficient resources. People there are living in appalling conditions.
A “Help thy neighbor” campaign was organized by the School of Humanities & Social Sciences on 29th April, 2015 at GDGU campus near the Coffee Day Express area from 11.30 am onwards.
The students of SoHSS sold candles which people bought and lit at theÃ‚Â venue. Students and faculty came forward and donated wholeheartedly. There was a donation box for materials whereÃ‚Â people could donate clothes, sheets,Ã‚Â woolens, toys, dry food items, medicines,Ã‚Â water purifying tablets, water bottles, torches, toiletries, sanitary napkins, umbrellas, raincoats etc. The boxesÃ‚Â shall be kept in the campusÃ‚Â for another week.
All the money and materials thus collected will be handed over to the Nepal Embassy as Relief Material for the people of NepalÃ‚Â who have suffered during the massive earthquakes and a series of successive tremors.Ã‚Â
