Nepal Earthquake Response Donations
Donations to the Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT), Earthquake Response Fund can be made by clicking here.
The Queen's Gurkha Engineer Association will not be establishing a special fund to receive donations. This has been agreed with the Gurkha Brigade Association as both organisations recognise the expetise and network which the GWT is able to leverage to support the people of Nepal at this time of crisis. The GWT funds the Gurkha Welfare Scheme in Nepal which in turns maintains a network of Area Welfare Centres throughout the mid-hills of the country. This includes a Centre in the hill town of Gorkha, one of the areas most severely affected by the earthquake. Despite sustaining significant structural damage, the Centre welfare and medical staff immediately began responding to the needs of the local community; the centres in Lamjung, Kaski and across Nepal have also responded in the same manner to the needs of their local communities.
