The Touro Graduate School Team Spearheads Relief Mission in Nepal June 15, 2015

The Touro Graduate School Team Spearheads Relief Mission in Nepal, Manhattan, New York

On April 25th, 2015, a devastating earthquake shook the country of Nepal, leaving untold destruction in its wake. More than 8,000 people were killed and 23,000 injured, and an estimated 450,000 people were displaced. When the community at Touro College Graduate School of Technology heard about this catastrophic event, they knew they needed to find a way to help. 

They immediately took action and began fundraising. The Touro community provided immeasurable support, with contributions and fundraising help provided by Touro College's Nepalese Society and Graduate School of Technology. But the fundraising efforts were only the beginning.

In the days following the earthquake, a team mobilized a relief 

mission to Nepal and arrived in the area on May 7th. For two weeks, they brought medical supplies, space blankets, food, tarpaulins, and more to the needy communities throughout Nepal. The Touro College Graduate School of Technology team consisted of students, alumni, faculty and staff, including Prerana Bhusal, Namrata Shrestha, Supath Sitaula, Sanchita Silwal, Dr. Evan Miller, Dr. Vladimir Fridman, and Sheela Chand.

The team's efforts were supported through generous help and contributions from individuals and organizations, including ChildReach Nepal, Heart Beat Nepal and Heart Beat New York, Global Links and LifeFlight Allegheny General Hospital, all of whom assisted with relief and medical supplies. 

The entire community at Touro College Graduate School of Technology is proud to support the people of Nepal as they work to recover and rebuild. To learn more about the graduate school's continuing education programs in a variety of technology-driven fields, contact them below:
