NOA Donated Medical supplies to Nepal earthquake victims
Newah Organization of America (NOA) sent medical supplies to earthquake victims in Nepal. NOA past President Mr. Rajesh Shrestha kindly agreed to escort the supplies to Nepal, and assisted in clearing the supplies through Nepal customs. After the supplies reached Nepal, they were given to the Rotary Club of Madhyapur (RCM) for turnover to the Nepal Army. The Army then distributed the supplies to a mobile health clinic for use in treating people in the surrounding areas. The Army also directly distributed some supplies to needy sick and injured people. We sincerely thanks to Neighborhood Health Services Inc. Alexandria who donated urgently needed medical supplies to NOA for earthquake victims to Nepal.

Dear NOA Friends, Families, and Community Members,
We would like to share this announcement that the Newah Organization of America's upcoming 14th National Annual Convention and General Meeting’s theme, venue and program structures have been changed.
The upcoming NOA National Annual Convention is tribute to the Earthquake Disaster Relief Effort and its victim on the aftermath of the debilitating and disastrous earthquake of 7.9 Richter-scale that struck our Homeland on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Due to this Earth quake thousands of people have been died and hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed at UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley.This year’s convention theme is “Nepal’s Earthquake: Relief, Recovery and Rebuild”.
The organization called "Runin Out," with the assistance of the Newah organization of America, co-organized a Nepal relief fundraiser event at CourtHaus Social in Arlington, VA. Runin Out handed over a relief check to NOA, just as they have been doing for several different other fundraiser events for Nepal relief which they have co-organized in the DC metro area. We appreciate very very much their help!
