At The Farmer's Market to Help Nepali Earthquake Victims by Adam Hubert

       On Saturday May 16, 2015, I went to the New Castle Framers Market to help people in Nepal. Did you know that a huge earthquake hit Nepal on April 25 2015? I watched a video with my mom to see what devastation the earthquake caused. I felt bad for the people there. It was horrifying to watch houses and pools turn into rubble. According to the Nutritional Emergency Operation Center, at least 3,617 people are now known to have died and more than 6,500 people have been injured. I want to help the Nepali people so they can have food, shelter, water, and clothe. At the farmers market, we collected money by selling chips and cookies. My sister Hana did face painting for $1 and my friend Ruhi sold portrait drawing also for $1. I was glad to be there to help out. It was nice to end the day by eating yummy ice cream. I recommend this video for you to see the effects of the earthquake. If you would like to help, donate at zakat.org.
