PLAY FOR NEPAL
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL-6
“A FUNDRAISER CONCERT IN AID OF FAMILIES OF SECURITY PERSONNELS AFFECTED BY THE EARTHQUAKE”
In the aftermath of the disastrous earthquake of April 25, national security agencies of Nepal are continuing to do commendable work in the rescue, relief and the ongoing rehabilitation and rebuilding work across the earthquake affected districts. Despite numerous shortcomings their prompt response to the crisis and the efforts they have put in on the ongoing herculean task of rehabilitation is admirable.
Latest figures indicate that homes of over fifteen thousand security personnel have been completely destroyed across the earthquake affected districts and an almost equal number have reported of homes that are partially destroyed. Almost five hundred personnel have lost an immediate family member and more have been injured. Their families are living under the open sky many still in a desperate state. Majority of our security personnel have not even had a chance to go back home and check on their families welfare because of demanding relief and rehab work that they are still engaged in across the affected areas.
In this pretext, on the occasion of the celebration of International Music day, our annual free event “Let The Good Times Roll” will be a fundraising charity event. Leading Nepali bands and artists are uniting for a one of a kind day long charity event- PLAY FOR NEPAL! A fundraising concert in benefit of families of national security personnel severely affected by the earthquake and its aftermath. The venue for this event is the St. Xavier’s school ground on June 20, 2015. Prior event effort is on to get as many people as we can to the event. A donation box will also be set up at the venue and we plan to donate the funds through proper channels to national security family associations/organizations already working in providing relief to affected families.
So let us come together to show our gratitude to our security personnel who have shed their blood, sweat and tears and sacrificed theirs and their families well being for the welfare of those in desperate need of help in this most difficult of times for Nepal!
