Announcement to all Drikung Kagyu Monastery, Nunneries, Centers and Organizations. I deeply appreciate that Drikung Kagyu Rinpoches, Monks, Nuns, Followers, Centers and Organizations are doing relief-work, saving lives and helping directly and indirectly victims of the recent earthquake deeply affected Nepal and neighbouring areas. After this initial and enourmous task of saving lives and ensuring safety of all, the task of reconstruction is a very heavy and longterm challenge.
In order to achieve this goal, we are organizing a special committee based on the International Drikung Kagyu Council (IDKC) in Nepal - a committee of 11 persons, which we will call "IDKC Nepal Earthquake Reconstruction Committee."
Today, we are going to open a bank account in accordance with the laws of the land. So, we request you to contribute directly to this specific account. Your contributions will be used very carefully and properly. We will also do international fundraising through Indiegogo. this effort is very urgent and we have identified over 50 different reconstuction porjects and thus your kind help and support is much needed.
