The Great Hyderabad Adventure Club is now moving from their regular weekend plans and are working for a specific cause -- to provide support to victims affected by the devastating Nepal quake that occurred two weeks ago.
They are all set to organise two fund raising programmes which will also benefit members of the Club. “We wanted to support Nepal in our own way. Our plan is to work in the remote villages and rebuild their homes. Though this attempt may seem miniscule compared to the loss by the quake, we are doing what we can,” says Diyanat Ali founder and director of GHAC. The team plans to collect money and send it to rebuild affected villages.
Since goods and supplies are piling up, they do not plan to buy materials. “ Nepal is currently facing difficulty in removing dead bodies from the quake debris. It is not supplies they need for now”, says Suresh Kochattil from team GHAC.
While the plan to collect funds by conducting events will be held this Sunday, they began the first leg of the mission by sending Jyothi Rongala, a member of GHAC to Nepal.
She is professionally trained in high altitude search and rescuing and will act as the mediator.
