Global Reach International has disbursed the funds to the orphanage in Nepal. Money is to be used for food and clothing. Bill Sansone the CEO of Global Reach International traveled to Nepal on March 8th through the 18th. The children at the orphanage were grateful for the donations given by GlobalGiving for the past few years. Although this is a small project, the money does go far in Nepal. Generally it costs around $25 per month per child to live in this orphanage. There are 25 children so it costs around $625 per month to run the facility. The supervisor of the orphanage still has the truck that he rents out to keep the place stable. The money we give helps secure additional funds needed for food and clothing. Please enjoy the pictures supplied below from my trip. Thank You.
Global Reach International has been disbursing the funds to those in need. On January 19th we visited some areas that were hit the hardest. After traveling to these areas it was surprising on how little has been done to rebuild. Many homes are still inhabitable.
Our focus was to make sure money went directly to those who really needed it. Below are some of the photos from our previous trip. We have asked locals to share their photos and stories in the coming weeks. Money has been distributed in the following way.
Union County EMS, Union Beach New Jersey has received $5000.00 to rebuild their EMS station back to what is was before.
Suffern Rotary Club: $500.00 for their relief of Hurricane Sandy
Great Neck Rotary Club: $500.00 for their relief of Hurricane Sandy
Home Depot Cards: Ranging from $150-$400 to local communities hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.
There is still many EMS and Fire Stations that need our help to rebuild their stations. Any support will be grealty appreciated. We thank you for your support in helping those who lost so much.
