About This Activity

Join us at WCU's South Campus as we raise money to aid the victims of the Nepal Earthquake.


In April 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit and destroyed Kathmandu, Nepal one of the world’s poorest countries. The earthquake has killed more than 8000 people and destroyed millions of homes. Nepal is home to Mount Everest and during the earthquake 19 people attempting to climb this highest peak in the world were also killed as they were camping at Everest base camp.

WHO (World Health Organization) estimated that 2.8 million people have been displaced and are homeless living in makeshift shelters with very limited access to toilets and fresh water since the devastation. Nepal is in need of so much, please help the students of WCU aid Nepal.
