ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
The earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday, April 25, has caused mass devastation, panic and loss. The death toll already exceeds 4,000 and will continue to rise. The UC San Diego Nepalese Student Association (NSA) is working around the clock to organize support and collect funds and supplies to help the devastated city of Kathmandu.
The NSA is holding a candlelight vigil for earthquake victims at 7pm on
Tuesday, April 28. The vigil will take place at Silent Tree at the
entrance to Geisel Library. The vigil will include remarks from the NSA
president, a moment of silence, and stories from members of the Nepalese
community whose families have been affected by the earthquake. More
details of the event may be found at:
We thank the UC San Diego and San Diego community for the outpouring of support they have shown for the people of Nepal and hope that you will be able to attend the vigil. To make a monetary donation, you may contact the Red Cross at http://www.redcross.org/

On behalf of the people Nepal, the NSA greatly appreciates any support you may show for the people of Nepal. We thanks the entire community of UC San Diego and look forward to seeing you at the vigil.
