Whats Happening at TWC
Spring Break for many students across Georgia means a fun vacation. For several volunteers from the Together We Can Foundation, it’s a time to come together and help others. On Tuesday, April 4th, 2018, Brandon Koh, Vanessa Ching, Kevin Lin, Brian Koh, Priscilla Lin, Joycelyn Lieu, Vivia Lung, Isabella Ching, San Teh and Leng Chang volunteered at Atlanta Tzu Chi. Everyone gathered at the Tzu Chi center that morning, enthusiastic and ready to work. SKA volunteers and Tzu Chi volunteers were divided into groups and were assigned to specific organizing and cleaning tasks on different parts of the premises. Volunteers young and old worked hand in hand in completing each task while learning about each other and sharing experiences during the process. After that, everyone enjoyed a delightful vegetarian lunch prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers.
The earthquake, which occurred this past Sunday, was the country's worst earthquake in 80 years. More than 6,200 deaths have been confirmed with dozens more injured. About 90% of the homes in the villages of Laprak and Barpak were completely destroyed, including centuries old temples, towers, and historic landmarks. This is a devastating earthquake for Nepal, an already poor country best known for having the tallest mountain in the world - Mt. Everest.
SKA Academy has once again partnered with TWC Foundation non profit to collect donations to help out this devastating disaster. TWC will be collecting donations until May 20th, which will be used to purchase medical supplies through The International Medical Corporation for those injured in the earthquake. The minimum donation amount is $10.00. In addition, every donation will be matched with Facebook. Donate $10, and Facebook will donate $10. Each and everyone of us can help aid and relieve the areas hit by the earthquake. To donate, stop by the front desk and sign in your donation in the SKA binder. Those who donate will receive a medal at the 2015 annual SKA Awards Ceremony.
