The vast majority of people around the world were hooked to their television set when they saw the devastation that took place in the country of Nepal on April 25, 2015. On that day, a 7.8 earthquake rocked the country. It caused mass devastation. In fact, the earthquake was so strong that it caused an avalanche on Mount Everest. Because of the avalanche, more than 19 people died on the mountain. That was one of the deadliest and saddest days in the history of Mount Everest and especially touched the climbing community. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of people around the country lost their homes. Even though much time has passed since then, much relief work still needs to be done. The country needs help cleaning and rebuilding homes. Also, medical aid is still needed. Over 22,000 people were injured in the quake that took place on April 25 and the many that followed.
Majeed Ekbal has set up a Go Fund Me account to help the victims of the earthquake. It is his goal to raise at least $10,000 that he will contribute to a crowdrise fund. He has already been donating money to that crowdrise fund. It has the purpose of raising $1 million to provide medical and disaster relief to the victims of the Nepal earthquake. This is something that is of special interest to him since he knows many people who live in the country. Majeed Ekbal has heard their experiences and knows that much suffering is still taking place. He is thankful for all donations that are made to the Go Fund Me account that he has set up.
