In addition to buying, cooking and giving out rice and lentils, the girls are also distributing first aid kits to victims, the nonprofit's founder Stephanie Waisler-Rubin tells People. One 20-year-old group home member who's working towards her nursing degree is already putting her skills to use. "She went from being a child who was sold by her mother to be a dishwasher to a full-fledged nurse," the founder says. "She's out there now with her stethoscope, helping."
"They have a purpose now -- they're helping their community and they feel like they're making a difference," she says of the girls. We applaud the girls of Unatti Foundation for selflessly helping those affected by the tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in the Nepal earthquake.
