Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Posted on 6 May 2015 by Markku Ahtiainen

The powerful earthquake hit Nepal on 25th April 2015. Thousands of people have been reported killed and thousands more injured and without homes. 

You can help.

The situation in Nepal has touched our hearts here at BARNA. Many of us have Nepalese work colleagues and/or have Nepalese friends. Their families in Nepal have been affected by the earthquake.

Here's how you can help the victims of the earthquake:

Make a donation by bank transfer to the British Anaesthetic Nurses Association's account: sort code 20-84-17 account number 00766275, please write "Nepal" as a message. BARNA will be handing over all the donated funds to the Nepalese Nurse Association UK (NNAUK) at the BARNA Conference on Friday 19th June 2015 in York. 

UPDATE (24th JUNE 2015): BARNA has collected £250 for the Earthquake appeal and is donating the money to the NNAUK. The appeal still continues.

About NNAUK: (from
