On April 13 a devastating earthquake struck Jyekundo, killing and injuring thousands. Funds will support medicine, clothing, food and clean water, in addition to long term rebuilding for the community
After a devastating earthquake that left an estimated 80% of buildings collapsed and thousands dead or injured, the situation in Jyekundo (Yushu) is worse than projected. The challenge to bring emergency relief is going to be very daunting. Under near freezing conditions, unknown numbers of people remain trapped under rubble while thousands are still without basic necessities - food, water, medicine and shelter.
The people of Jyekundo urgently need your immediate help for medicines, clothing, food and clean water, and in the longer term for rebuilding. Machik is networked with Tibetans who have years of experience serving local community needs in the area.
Long term relief plans include carrying out a program to train Tibetans in disaster relief management including emergency medicine and preparedness, especially for the most vulnerable groups such as children in schools.
Medical and healthcare needs are critically urgent and growing by the hour. The people of Jyekundo will need our continued support in the days, weeks and months to come. - Losang and Tashi Rabgey, Machik Co-founders
