University Secretary and Vice President for Student Life Kimberly Goff-Crews sent the following message to members of the Yale community about fundraising for the victims of the April 25 earthquake in Nepal.
As we begin to comprehend the full devastation of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal and surrounding regions on April 25, what is becoming clear is that the people of Nepal are in dire need of assistance. Thousands of lives have been lost, thousands have been injured, entire villages have been razed, and cultural landmarks lie in ruin. The death toll continues to climb amid threats of damaging aftershocks. Our deepest sympathies go out to the millions who have been impacted by such terrible losses.
