Make a gold coin donation to help support victims of the Nepal Earthquake

FREE LUNCH…not this week! The GCAP Committee will be asking all of you for a gold coin donation this week at the Free lunch on Tuesday and the Social drinks on Friday. All donations will go to the UNICEF Australia Nepal Earthquake Children’s Appeal. For many of you that have enjoyed many free lunches and free drinks over the past 2 years, we don’t think a gold coin is too much to ask. Please have your donation and student ID ready at the door.

A devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal, causing severe destruction and loss of life in Kathmandu and surrounding areas. An earthquake of this size can be deadly, toppling buildings, and destroying roads and infrastructure.

Hospitals are overcrowded, treating people in the streets and running out of emergency supplies. The power is out and communications are badly affected and we don’t yet have a full picture of the devastation. UNICEF fears the disaster, which is reported to have already killed hundreds of people, will have a severe impact on children.

UNICEF is on the ground, evaluating what needs to be done to urgently respond to children’s emergency needs for protection, water and sanitation, health and nutrition.

Your donation will fund UNICEF’s emergency response to the Nepal Earthquake Children’s Appeal. Should the funds raised exceed the programming needs, your donation will be used to fund other life-saving UNICEF emergency programs.
