Facing Nepal: Bird of Stone Bringing Hope to Nepal Once Again

Our creative support team in Israel have launched an innovative way to raise funds for our operation - the Bird of Stone pin.  The Bird of Stone is a golden pin shaped as the bird from the King Yoganarendra Malla’s Statue in Patan, Nepal, referred to as the “Bird of Stone” in Rachel Shapira’s song “Nepal”, the most familiar version of which is sung by Gali Atari.

According to legend (as well as the song), when the Bird of Stone flies, “it will become a time of abundance, and all the hopeless will no longer know distress”.  Sadly the original Bird of Stone at the temple in Patan, Nepal, was destroyed during the earthquake.

Please help us preserve its memory. One pin costs 20₪, with all  the income going towards our work in Nepal.

For more information see the Bird of Stone facebook page.
