    The recent earthquake in Nepal has had a devastating effect on rural communities. As well as the devastating loss of life, many buildings have been flattened, food sources have been wiped out and roads have become impassable. International aid has been largely centered in Kathmandu and has yet to reach many of these communities.

    CU HELP supports roughly 40 volunteers going out to the rural Helambu region of Nepal each summer and all of us know people who so generously hosted us in summer, who are now caught up in this disaster. We have set up a fundraising campaign in partnership with The MondoChallenge Foundation to help support these communities.
