G Adventures launches $75,000 Nepal earthquake aid appeal

A $75,000 aid appeal has been started by G Adventures in response to the huge earthquake that devastated Nepal.

Funds raised will support the long-term recovery of the affected communities.

The operator’s founder Bruce Poon Tip said: “Nepal needs our help. Relief agencies are already mobilising to provide food, shelter, and medicine to those affected by the earthquake, but it doesn’t end there. It will take months, even years to rebuild the country.”

The company pledged to cover all administration costs so 100% of all donations will directly benefit the initiative. Donations can be made at http://bit.ly/1Qx5Sv1.
