UNICEF’S Nepal Earthquake Children’s Appeal

Two earthquakes have devastated the lives of thousands in Nepal.

Children face an unprecedented emotional toll as they deal with the devastating consequences of two earthquakes in the space of weeks — and with 5,000 schools damaged or destroyed, more than 1 million children have been left without classrooms.

“We are looking forward – but we cannot
ignore the desperate situation that still faces
so many children across the country. So
many young lives have been torn apart
and children are still in desperate need of
life-saving support, including clean water,
health services, nutrition and counselling.”

- Karin Hulshof, UNICEF Regional Director for South Asia

Monk Bodhi Dharma is thrilled to have Salvador Persico [percussion Blue King Brown] and friends joining us for a little latin groove out front under the tarps.

+ the van will be parked outside MBD again for anyone wanting a private dinning experience on Moroccan rugs  - we can seat 4 comfortably.
