YMC, as often in the past, has decided to do its bit for the victims of Nepal's recent tragedy. Its scale of intervention at present is limited to making the lives of the victims a little less inhospitable and preparing them to take the future a little more optimistically. Making children laugh through games and play resulting in smiles of mothers could be one such intervention. Clearing the rubble off public spaces and damaged homes which can help the process of rebuilding, and providing small things that the victims need could be still another.

YMC has a lot of experience. It was there in Kutch after the latter got devastated by a cyclone and a killer earthquake; in Nagapattinam, after the tsunami; in J&K, after the quake; and in Raigad, Uttarakhand and Bihar, after the floods. Thanks to the annual youth camps YMC organizes, it has a network of contacts among the youth in all parts of the country. They have the necessary motivation and the needed will to put in hard work and face hardships. Many of them are willing to go where their services are needed. And those of us who cannot, can give money, of course this is the most essential, and we can give in kind as well many small things like: disinfectant tablets to disinfect drinking water, clothes, tents, durries, blankets, packed food items, utensils - the things that we need in a home. And when we give, we also share in some way their grief and their hardships and, in turn, have the feeling that we have done something for humanity.

So let's start giving, and giving generously
