We have seen how the world came together to support the BLM movement only to ignore the plight of migrant workers in Singapore, the political crisis in both the Philippines and Hong Kong, the horrible religious/political conflict in India, today we’re helping bring awareness to a humanitarian crisis in Nepal.
Hopefully, you will take note.
Here’s the message:
Metal For Nepal is a not for profit organization which aims to bring the global metal and arts community together to tackle the humanitarian crisis caused by Covid-19. No one should be forced to die of hunger and thirst.
This is Underside from Kathmandu, Nepal. We hope you’re all keeping safe in these strange times. We’re aware the whole world is struggling with the consequences of this pandemic, but wish urgently to highlight the crisis currently afflicting a third-world country like Nepal.
As seen in many societies, it’s the people at the bottom of the ladder suffering the most. Thousands of migrant workers from India are trying to get home, causing a humanitarian crisis at the border. People haven’t had access to food and water for days.
This is simply unacceptable. Even in Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu, daily wage workers are dying from starvation. We want to do something about it, just as we did during Nepal’s cataclysmic earthquake in 2015, which destroyed over 600,000 homes.
With the help of our amazing Swiss friends at No Silence for Nepal Association and the support of the global metal community, we were able to build over 300 homes in the district of Gorkha.
We firmly believe the Metal and Arts community will come together once again and help us save lives! We are requesting your support in whatever way you can.
