Rescue missions and emergency aid continue to arrive in Nepal after a massive earthquake hit the country on 25 April, killing at least 4,000 people and injuring thousands more. The 7.8-magnitude quake, the worst to hit Nepal in more than 80 years, has affected 8 million people in the country's 39 districts, including 1.4 million needing food assistance, according to government officials.
"Rotarians worldwide stand together in expressing a profound sadness at the devastation resulting from this weekend's deadly earthquake in Nepal," says RI President Gary C.K. Huang. "As we mourn the thousands of lives lost, Rotary joins other international agencies in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts throughout the country."
Rotary District 3292 in Nepal set up a disaster relief fund to help victims in the hardest hit areas. Immediate funds will go towards food, water, medical supplies, and shelter. For information on how you can help, contact District Governor Rabindra Kumar Piya.
Rotary partner ShelterBox is sending a response team to the affected areas to determine immediate needs. Because of previous disasters in Nepal, the group already has tents and other nonfood items ready for deployment.
The Rotary Club of Andover is pleased to honor the memory of the late Philip Mercandetti, Barbara Dolan, and other former Andover residents by awarding scholarships in their names to deserving graduating Andover high school students.
To be considered, eligible students must reside in Andover, not be a direct relative of a Rotarian, and will be attending an institution of higher learning during the next school semester.
Selection will be based on completeness of all information requested — need, community service, scholastic history, and future goals. Candidates will be invited to interview personally with the Rotary Club of Andover's Scholarship Committee, who will make the final decision. The scholarships will be awarded to the selected students upon proof of enrollment and attendance at their school of choice.
