Local group raises funds for earthquake ravaged Nepal


POUGHQUAG – The Bodhivastu Foundation,
based in Poughquag, is raising funds for earthquake-torn Nepal.

Founded by Adam Friedensohn, a 20-year former resident of Nepal, the not-for-profit
group is seeking money. He has close connections to the country and its
people as his wife is Nepalese.

None of his family members or friends there was killed in the Saturday
disaster; however, their homes were destroyed.

Bodhivastu Foundation is in the process of providing immediate relief
to several locations in Nepal coordinating with a partner organization
in Kathmandu called the Himalayan Light Foundation.

So far, Friedensohn’s group has raised $20,000 in two days as he
said getting money to the victims is the important thing now because there
is a need for food.
