Helping Hands For Lantang Valley, Nepal
Organized by: Pema Tsering Karmarong
Thousands of people have been killed by a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015. There is widespread devastation across Nepal. The death toll, now over 3,500, continues to rise as search and rescue efforts are underway in Kathmandu and across the country. People are still trapped under collapsed buildings in Kathmandu, and there is no way to accurately guess how many are in need throughout the other cities and thousands of villages at this time. We have been hearing that villages - especially those closest to the epicenter - have been the most devastated.
And we are planning to support one of those highly affected villages - langtang valley. Langtang valley has always been close to my heart as all of my childhood friends are from there. It broke my heart when I realized some of my childhood friends lost their lives in the earthquake. And others lost their beloved family.
Hope everyone will support us. We shall do small supports for small numbers of people in a very effective way.
