Distribution of Relief Items to Communities Affected by Floods in Morang

Generous eSewa users and donors,
Thank you to all who have contributed to the disaster relief fund. To date, we received more than 5 lakhs of relief fund to help the victims of the devastating flood, which drastically changed the lives of several hundred children and their families.
It is very hard for most of us to imagine losing our home, and everything else we own, in a matter of a few seconds. Then having to start over by first searching for a place to live until you can get your life back together knowing nothing will ever be the same.
But thanks to you, they are beginning a new chapter in their lives and with God’s blessing we know that we will continue to help because of caring people like you.
Again on behalf of those who were benefited from your generosity, please accept our deepest appreciation. We cannot thank you enough for your recent donation. We are absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity, work and prayers of so many wonderful people. We thank each and every one of you.

Gratefully,
eSewa family
