NCCS organized first vigil in memory of earthquake victims of Nepal on April 25, 2015 in Wellesley area of downtown Toronto, the day a M7.8 Richter scale earthquake hit Nepal at 11.56 am local time . The program was attended by a large people of Nepalese community, representatives of various organizations and media people. The very same day NCCS launched donation campaign too. The donation campaign has been in operation in partnership with PWRDF, a charity entity that will issue tax receipts and will also match dollar-for-dollar policy of federal Government of Canada .
Another program for rally and vigil was hosted on May 3, 2015. A large procession that started from Wellesley area converged into a gathering for vigil on the yard of city hall. The vigil was attended by MP, deputy mayor, Consul, representatives of various organizations, and community members. The program was also live streamed. A brochure appealing for the donation was also distributed during the rally. Volunteers from NCCS also collected donation carrying donation boxes during the procession and vigil time periods.
On behalf of Nepalese community of Canada, in the vigil program Mr. Anjani Bhattarai, chairman, NCCS requested federal and provincial Government of Canada to increase the financial assistance at least to $50.00 million, double the time period to two months for dollar-for-dollar matching policy and ease the immigration process/services.
The federal MP while delivering her condolence message in the vigil said that she had noted down all the three requests and will communicate the same to the members in the House of Commons. The blog site of the Hon. MP shows that she has already forwarded our requests to House. However responses to those requests were not specific. The link for the blog is: blog . The deputy mayor of Toronto also promised of circulating the requests in appropriate network in her live stage condolence statement.
Similarly, we would like to sincerely thank all the generous individuals who joined their hands with Nepalese Canadian Community Services (NCCS) in raising fund to support the earthquake affected people in Nepal. The total amount of donation $13,075.00 raised through NCCS between April 25 and May 25, 2015 was handed over to PWRDF.
