Rural Women NZ and The Farmy Army Help Nepal

Written by Rural Women NZ on June 20th, 2015.      0 comments

nepal building-856Rural Women's Network Nepal (RUWON-Nepal) have started a joint relief campaign with ALIVE Nepal. We know this is a genuine group working to support women in Nepal.

If you wish to donate, send your donation to National Office or deposit your donation through online banking into the Rural Women NZ account 06 0501 0778590 00. Reference Nepal. All funds go directly to the campaign.

Also RWNZ has organized a collection with Farmy Army to buy tarpaulins and have them shipped to Nepal in time for the monsoon rains.

Hurry if you wish to support this fundraiser as it closes on Wednesday 24 June.  The Farmy Army is rallying to send humanitarian aid to Nepal. Together with the Student Volunteer Army and the Himalayan Trust we will be sending tarpaulins, ropes, school supplies and some bedding by air, initially at a cost of approximately $10/kg. We would welcome donations towards freight, which can be paid to Federated Farmers account 06-0501-0035869-00.

Please note:

When you pay into this account, that we require the reference to say 'Farmy Army'
Because we are not a charitable society, so your donations will not be eligable for a tax credit.
If you would like to donate tarpaulins to Nepal then you simply telephone or email either Mitre10 branch below, order the item/s that you wish to donate (with Item and Code No), give them your Ruralco or Farmlands card number and that's all you have to do!
