NAYA has created a GoFundMe donation page where anyone can donate money to support the relief efforts.

After a devastating magnitude-7.8 earthquake rocked the country of Nepal on Saturday, residents of Ridgewood are being asked to come together to support the victims of this natural disaster.

Ridgewood has a large Nepalese community, and each and every one of them were shaken by the news of the massive earthquake that hit their home country. Some have lost family members in the quake, while others are still waiting to hear from loved ones.

The Nepalese American Youth Association (NAYA) is asking the community to help the earthquake victims by donating items needed by the survivors.

On their Facebook page, NAYA is asking for donations of medical supplies such as bandages, surgical gloves and masks, ibuprofen and sterile syringes. They are also looking for donations of energy bars, clean clothes, blankets, batteries, flashlights, duct tape and other necessities.

Donations are being collected at Nepalese Indian Restaurant located at 907 Seneca Ave.

NAYA has also created a GoFundMe donation page where anyone can donate any amount of money to support the relief efforts. In just four days, NAYA has collected over $3,000 from 78 donators.

NAYA is hosting a memorial vigil for the earthquake’s victims Wednesday evening, from 8 to 10 p.m. at Carl Clemens Triangle located on the corner of Myrtle and Cypress avenues.

For more information on donating and the vigil, please contact Bikash Kharel, treasurer and one of the founding members of NAYA, at 718-581-9840.
