Victims of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake Still Need Help

The country of Nepal was completely devastated in April 2015 new when a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred. During the following weeks, many aftershocks happened that caused even more damage. More than 9,000 people were killed. More than 20,000 people were injured. Many people were left without suitable homes to live in. Fortunately, many organizations around the world worked hard to provide relief to individuals who lived in the country. However, more relief is needed. Majeed Ekbal has set up a Go Fund Me account to help individuals who are still suffering because of a lack of food and a variety of illnesses.

It is his goal to raise at least $1 million to help provide medical and disaster relief. The money will be used to provide clean water, healthy food, suitable housing, and medicine to individuals who were affected by the earthquake. Majeed appreciates money that is donated, no matter the size of the donation. He thanks individuals who use their personal funds to help individuals in the country of Nepal. This is something that is especially dear to his heart since he has many friends who live in the country.

Majeed Ekbal is well known in the city of Chicago as a successful real estate investor. He is also well known as an entrepreneur. He set up the company Expresso Inc. This is a grocery delivery service that helps individuals who are busy. It is a convenient service that helps people who do not want to go to the grocery store. They are able to find items they would like to purchase online and then these items are delivered to their home. Only a small fee is charged. This small fee is more than worth paying to most individuals who are busy since they do not need to use gas to drive to the grocery store, and they are able to save tons of time by not driving to the store as well as wandering around looking for the items they would like to purchase. This service is even available to individuals who live outside of the Chicago area. He has offered to mail via Federal Express items from large chain stores as well as specialty shops in the area to people across the United States.
