During the mid-2015, Nepal was ravaged with two back-to-back powerful earthquakes which killed around 8700 people, injuring more and destroyed more than 600,000 structures in Kathmandu and nearby towns and villages. The initial shock occurred on the 25th April, which registered a moment magnitude of 7.9 on the Richter scale along with 2 aftershocks creating further destruction. The second earthquake hit the centre of Kathmandu on May 12th with a magnitude of 7.3 causing even further devastation as people who began to clean-up the initial destruction fell victim to it. This disaster claimed the livelihood of countless families who were no longer able to support their families and their children’s educational needs.

Best way to make a difference in the lives of other.
In response to this disaster, Sewa International team members of Sydney and Brisbane organised a cultural evening event to collect funds for the Nepal Flood victims aid in Blacktown as well as in Indooroopilly.
The event was welcomed and supported by the local residents and was a grand success program. This demonstrated the concern for the wellbeing of people across borders, and the eagerness to support a noble cause.
In order to support this noble cause, many local artists performed various dance compositions as well as sing karaoke songs. Local artists came forward and created amazing artworks live on stage which was auctioned where the proceeds were donated for the cause.
We raised a total of $40,000 for the victims of the devastation.
We would like to thank you all, for participating in this event and making it a grand success!
