1,000 rupees, 2013. Like NRB B79, but now dated at lower center front and back, and the bank name in English appears on the back.
On 25 April 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu, causing massive devastation in the nation's capital and largest city, with more than 5,800 fatalities officially confirmed as of 30 April. Rescue efforts are underway and the death toll continues to rise. Homes, buildings, and infrastructure have been badly damaged and destroyed. Relief organizations are mobilizing to provide support and emergency supplies to the people impacted.
Please consider helping the relief efforts by donating to any one of the many relieft organizations via PayPal, which is waiving fees for donations made through this campaign, ensuring that 100% of your gift reaches the organization you support.
