MEHFIL NIGHT WITH RAJEEV SHARMA-A NEPAL BENEFIT CONCERT
 

MEHFIL NIGHT WITH RAJEEV SHARMA

A NEPAL BENEFIT CONCERT

 

On Saturday 22nd August 2015, the Kadwa Patidar Centre in Kenmore Avenue, Harrow rocked for Nepal. The organiser and secretary, SKPS, Nitin Changela commented that although, ticket sales were a struggle just 10 days prior, (even at £15.00 with a delicious Vegetarian dinner by Annapurna Caterers included) it all came together on the day with attendance almost 500. On a hot summer night, donations from the patrons touched £11,000 and once Gift Aid, proceeds from the function and donations from the wider community are in, the goal is to donate £20,000 which would be enough to build a school in an affected village in Nepal.

The Samaj always wanted to do something useful for Nepal and late August was chosen since most families would be back from summer holidays, and various other charity events had already taken place in June and July, fundraising for Nepal’s worst disaster which displaced 3 million people and killed almost 9,000. 90% of schools were severely damaged and 10,000 clinics destroyed, many needing rebuilding. Being one of the poorest countries in the world, did not help and the government appealed to the world to help. Emergency help went in within weeks averting a catastrophe, but now rebuilding is a priority.

There were many agencies doing wonderful work for Nepal but the Kadwa Patidar Samaj (U.K.) Ltd chose the MZ & KZ Shah Foundation of Mukesh Shah, who has raised £254,000 already and he went to Nepal in May and spent £150,000 on 2,500 shelters, 15 schools, 1 Old People’s Home rebuilt and installing a Water Facility in one village. Importantly, this Charity has Zero Administration Cost. In September Mukesh Shah is going back to rebuild up to 20 schools of which one will hopefully be built from the funds raised at the Mehfil Concert at Kadwa Patidar Centre.

Nitin Changela thanked all the patrons who supported the Mehfil Night and donated to the Nepal Disaster.
