The Story

Join Curry Without Worryin feeding more than 350 people every Tuesday in Kathmandu!


More than 8 million people in Nepal have been affected by the country’s earthquakes in 2015. Curry Without Worry (CWOW), a direct-service organization run entirely by volunteers, is on the ground in Kathmandu helping those in need. Every Tuesday, volunteers cook nutritious, life-saving food for more than 350 people, providing them support through this crisis.

After the devastating earthquakes that caused more than 9,000 deaths in 2015, thousands of people are still living in tents. Their homes have been destroyed or damaged beyond repair by the initial earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. In a country with poverty levels already among the highest in the world, this year's earthquake has pushed nearly one million people further into hopelessness.

Not only do CWOW volunteers provide meals every week in Kathmandu, but CWOW’s founder, Shrawan Nepali, and his team are delivering hygienic supplies to residents forced to live in tent cities and distributing dry foods to neighboring villages void of government support. This hands-on team is helping to rebuild a stronger community. In order to continue to have a positive impact, they need YOUR SUPPORT!


We are asking for donations of any size to help CWOW's operations in Nepal. The smallest amount can go a long way. It only takes $200 to feed 350 people on the streets of Kathmandu. Our goal is to raise $10,400 - enough to serve 350 people once per week for an entire year.

Thank you to all of you who have already contributed. We are well on our way to our goal. However, the need for these funds is now even greater, and we need to continue to get the word out. Please forward a link to our cause to help Curry Without Worry continue their hard work despite the blockade.

Urgent: Help Nepalis Survive During Economic Blockade
While Nepal continues to recover from the earthquake that hit in April, the country is entrenched in another crisis: an economic blockade preventing the import of life savings goods and services from India. 
Nepal's government is going through a transition and a group of people in southern Nepal, along the border of India, do not agree with its direction. They have been protesting for the past several months. India is afraid of mixing with these protesters and has decided to halt all imports to Nepal (note: Nepal gets the majority of its imports from India). 
This decision is a devastating one for the people of Nepal on many levels and has led to a lack of food, gas for heating, oil for driving and medical supplies. Through it all, Curry Without Worry Nepal (CWOW) is determined to continue its effort by using wood fires to heat food and keep residents nourished. 
This need is urgent. Our goal is to reach $6,500 by the end of 2015 to help CWOW in its efforts, despite the blockade. Please donate today!
