The Thief River Falls Rotary Club has pledged over $2,000 to help the people in Nepal following a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and subsequent 7.3 magnitude earthquake. News outlets report that the earthquakes have claimed the lives of an estimated 8,125 people and affected an estimated eight million people (one million of whom are children). All funds will be sent to the local Nepalese Rotary District 3292, where a disaster relief fund has been established.
Speaking on the disaster, Thief River Falls President Joe Hedrick said, “The people of Nepal need our help. The enormous loss of life can never be replaced, but with our help they can begin to rebuild. As Rotarians we must always remember our principle motto ‘Service Above Self’.”
