Today the team delivered relief aid to 50 families from the
villages of Sankhu, Changu and Sundarijal in the Bhaktapur
This is the translation of the video above:
"God bless you and thank you for this help. We are from Changu in
the Bhaktpur district mountain area. It takes us one hour by bus
to get here. We hope we find a bus to get back today otherwise we
will have to walk. We lost everything from the earthquake. We
have nothing left."

With the magnificence of the Himalayas as a backdrop, the
bustling city of Kathmandu has always been known for its allure
to tourists, trekkers and those searching for a better
understanding of the culture of Nepal.
In the aftermath of the earthquake, Kathmandu has a new identity,
that of a tent city. This video, shot just a few days ago, shows
the new Kathmandu, a city of rubble and ruin where people are now
living on the sidewalks under tarps held up by ropes. Some have
no homes to return to, others are just afraid to return home as
strong aftershocks continue to rumble through the region.
Madan posted on his Facebook page last week "5.0 Richter scale
earthquakes are just normal for us now."

The images in this
video are heartbreaking. Each devastated home
has a story behind it. Each crumbled building has affected
someone's livelihood. The need in Nepal will far surpass our
resources. Please CLICK

On May 12, 2015, another 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck the
Kathmandu area. At least 65 people were killed in Nepal and
another 1,900 were injured. There are also reports of casualties
in India and China. The quake triggered many landslides blocking
the roads and complicating relief efforts. Already fragile
buildings were furthered compromised. A hospital in Kathmandu
collapsed leaving some people trapped.

Yesterday, food and tents were delivered to 46 families in Khadka
Gaun in the Bhaktapur district, after becoming aware of a very
sad situation there. Some help had been delivered to this
village, but the higher caste families were not sharing the
relief aid with the lower caste families. The higher caste
families were using the extra drinking water given to them to
irrigate their farmland rather than giving it to the lower caste
families in need.
It has been raining quite a bit since the earthquake, and this is
not typical weather for this time of year in Nepal. The woman in
the picture above told our team members that her family has been
living under a make shift tent made of broken rice bags to stay
out of the rain. She was very thankful for our help.
More relief is planned for another nearby village tomorrow.
We have been able to help many families so far with food and
tents and there are many more in need.
Thank you for your generous support for the earthquake affected
people in Nepal. If you would like to make a contribution please
