Nepal sent $50,000 in aid to the state of Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina to help New Orleans and the affected regions. In the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, we would like to return the favor, and we need your help! Be part of the effort to provide Nepali earthquake survivors the same care and generosity given to our community.

Louisiana Himalaya Association(LHA) has been dedicated to improving the lives of people in the Himalayan regions of India and Nepal while providing a cultural bridge between Tibet and Louisiana since 1997. LHA has carefully reviewed the progress of aid in Nepal and asks for donations to provide immediate temporary shelter and housing supplies. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to those in need, and every dollar is valuable. 

If you have an item or service to donate, or have any questions about the event, or would like to volunteer your time or skills, please contact Marie O'Neil at .

We in New Orleans know well how long and difficult the road to recovery from a natural disaster of this magnitude is. Now, our friends in the Himalayas need our help. Thank you so much for your support, New Orleans. We couldn't do this without you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
