Some Special Posts at PAO~REFLECTIONS **** http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PAOR/messages
Saturday's massive 7.9 earthquake destroyed most of the historical sites and other buildings in and around our capital city of Kathmandu where thousands of people have died and more are left homeless without food or shelter. A full-scale assessment is not yet complete, but this was a very large earthquake and a very shallow one so we are expecting significant casualties and damage especially in Lamjung, Gorkha district (the epicenter of the earthquake). Because of the massive damage and recovery efforts focused on Kathmandu Valley we are deeply concerned about the uncertain devastation in Gorkha where the entire village has been destroyed !
I am in mourning, sheer devastation, massive destruction, my heart is crying seeing so much suffering, uncertainty, and chaos in my home country. I am reaching out to you for your support at this very tragic time.
Please help us unite to send the much needed help and supplies to affected areas!
I thank you in advance for pledging from the bottom of my heart!
