StampNews.com got to know that Thailand Post issued a pane of stamps to help raise money for victims of the April 25 earthquake in Nepal. The 7.8-magnitue earthquake devastated much of Nepal, killing more than 8,000 people, injuring more than 17,000 and leaving thousands of more homeless.
A new stamp collection was produced by Thailand Post to raise funds for earthquake victims in Nepal. The "Thailand Post for Nepal" collection consists of 20 stamps and will be sold for Bt120 (S$4.70) a set. Each stamp depicts scenic spots and the daily life of Nepalese people, photographed before the quake, by 2009 National Artist Woranan Chatchawanti-pakorn, and 1989 SEA WRITE Award winner Jiranan Pitpreecha, as well as other well-known photographers. English-language inscriptions on the pane include THAILAND "Post for Nepal" in the upper selvage, with the names of the photographers and the Canon logo in the selvage below the stamps.
The pane will be donated to quake victims through the Red Cross Society of Nepal.
