FFWPU Nepal, Santosh Kumar Paudel: “As you may have heard True Mother designated $1 million to Nepal. Tears well up in our eyes thinking of this sacrifice. These funds, according to True Mother’s specific wishes, will be added to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, used for direct assistance to Unificationist Families living in Nepal and to rebuild infrastructure. Because True Parents have been so well received in Nepal at the national level on numerous occasions, True Mother wants to reach out to the entire nation. At the same time, she wants to reach out to Unificationist Families personally, at least in some small way.
