Nepal Earthquake 2015 Relief Donation Drive

As many of you may know, on the 25th of April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, and current reports have estimated that over 8 million people have been affected, displaced by the quake and are in dire need of aid.

Even though International aid has already started to mobilize, with a quarter of the country's population facing immediate shortages of water, food, and electricity, as well as fears for an outbreak of disease, Nepal needs as much help as possible from the global community. According to the United Nations, at least 1.4 million people currently require food aid.

From today untll May 10th, at Play-Asia.com, we are starting our own donation drive in efforts to help the Nepal Earthquake 2015 Relief Operation. To do this, we will be donating for every order made within this time frame to the Hong Kong Red Cross for relief & recovery work in the Nepal Earthquake 2015 Relief Operation.

As well, we will round up the final amount to the next 5K mark; for example, a total donation of USD 5001 would then become USD 10000 as the final donation.

We hope that with your help, we can unite together and help allievate the hardships of the people of Nepal.

From all of us at Play-Asia.com, we thank you for taking the time to read this, and for your help in the coming days.
