Regular readers of this blog will remember my friends, the Search and Rescue Dogs of Nepal, from my previous posts here and here. Sadly, SARDog Hunter passed away recently, I send my condolences to his handler, Suk Bahadur Lama. SARDogs Nepal desperately need people to sponsor them. I am posting a copy of an email from them, please have a read through and pass on the information to anyone that you think may be interested in helping them. Thank you.

Dear friends, Namaste!
We always seek supporters for our SAR Dog teams and our work in Nepal.
Money is short here, because Nepalese Government does not support private social initiatives, such like ours.
They are not even able to provide proper facilities or reasonable salaries for our National Police Force, except for weapons and basic training. Our country seems to be for ever domed to be a developing one, due to political incompetence and structural nepotism.
We welcome all those who are able to donate sporadically or regularly, what so ever they can afford.
For me as the Executive  Director of sardogsnepal it is always difficult to guess what people intend, when they ask me how to send money to us. Therefore I write this mail here as a kind of overview of needs and what options people have to send us an one time sum, or a periodical sum, or if they are well suited financially, a fixed monthly, bi-monthly or annual sum of donation.
We even are happy with every little bit. For us a sponsor or donor is not measured as big or small. A donor who gives a little from the heart is having the same value for us as a donor who can afford anything more.
One can give any *one-time amount from 35 Dollar upward and we are happy. Lesser is not recommended because of the usual high transfer costs.
One can give a three monthly, bi-monthly , monthly or annual amount of 35 Dollar or anything larger than this.
One can give a monthly fixed amount from  35 to 50 Dollar and upward, by his/her bank standing order to our bank accounts of sardogsnepal, for a purpose like for example: (should / or can be mentioned in bank transfer sheet)
* financial support for dog food and medical health care
* financial support for a SAR Dog handler, his dog and his family (we have 10 handlers and their dog to chose from. See pictures below)
* financial support for our equipment and replacements running costs
* financial support for where needed most urgently

If ever a donor comes for holidays we will give all our effort to make his/her/their stay a memorable and wonderful adventure.
Kind regards
