Truman students remembering those in Nepal
Thu, 30 Apr 2015 02:49:00 GMT —
Truman State University students came together Wednesday night to remember those in Nepal. There was a candlelight vigil outside the Multicultural Affairs Center on campus in recognition of those affected by the deadly weekend earthquake in Nepal.
The students wanted to do this in memory of those who were killed and to be in solidarity with the survivors.
39 Truman students are from Nepal. They're understandably devastated by the tragedy in their country and want to help with the relief effort by raising funds.
In the aftermath of the earthquake, members of Namaste Nepal have focused their efforts on helping their home country.
They have been fundraising on the Quad this week, and gifts can also be made through donation boxes in the Center for International Students, located in Baldwin Hall 129, as well as the Multicultural Affairs Center. Checks should be made payable to "Namaste Nepal." Those unable to donate on campus can use Namaste Nepal's GoFundMe campaign, available at gofundme.com/HelpNepalStandTall.
