My country has suffered enormous loss, pain and devastation
Nepal is my home. Not only has it been a constant source of inspiration for my work as a fashion designer in New York City — it’s where I grew up and where my family still resides. My life is deeply rooted in Nepal. Saturday, April 25th, will be a date forever ingrained into my being. I woke up heart-stricken to have learned that a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake had killed countless people in my home country, and destroyed so many aspects of Nepal.

The earthquake in Nepal has so far claimed at least 5,000 lives, and the number is expected to double, with many more injured, displaced, homeless, and in need. It’s an impossible international disaster to ignore, even though many of us are thousands of miles away. Despite the distance, it’s something that intimately affects those who have family and friends in Nepal, like designer Prabal Gurung. “Nepal is truly my home,” he says. “I grew up there, have family there, so it’s inevitably part of who I am. Nepal was and is in a state of complete shock and they need the funds to help handle what they’re going through.”

The huge earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday has claimed over 1,000 lives, and has been met with an outpouring of support for aid agencies that are seeking to provide relief for survivors.

One of the most vocal and successful fundraisers in the effort has been fashion designer Prabal Gurung, who is rapidly raising thousands of dollars for the Shikshya Foundation Nepal’s relief fund.

Gurung, who was raised in Kathmandu, Nepal, is a brand ambassador and board member at the foundation, which partners with organizations to provide education support to children in Nepal. In response to the earthquake, Gurung’s organization has launched a campaign specifically aimed at collecting funds to support victims of the quake, saying it will donate 100 percent of the money raised.

“I’m from Nepal originally and still have many friends and family members there. The news of the earthquake is heartbreaking. The devastating aftermath, gut wrenching,” Gurung said in a statement to The WorldPost. “Since I can’t be there to help personally, I decided the best way for me to help was to leverage my resources and connections to raise funds to help in the relief efforts. Non action is not an option.”
