The Family of Narayan Khadka

Organized by: Mary Ng

THE STORY:

May 1st (Narayan-approved) update:  From the 200 people who were staying at the church, there are now only 50-70 as people are now able to go to the villages to check on their loved ones. Narayan is searching for a room in the church in KTM for his parents to stay.  They are still in the village.   Tomorrow, Narayan, his brother and their other aunt will be visiting the village with food, tent, and clothes. His aunt, who was airlifted, is still under treatment. 


I was able to chat with him on the phone for a little bit earlier today and it was great hearing the voice of an old friend that I haven't heard in 2 years.  I can sense his uplifted spirit and the joy in his voice.   Morale has been much higher for Narayan and his family because of the love, thoughtfulness, and compassion from donors and well-wishers like you.   

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apr 29th Summary: Narayan has given me permission to share his story. Narayan, his wife, and his daughter are currently staying at a church in open ground among 200 other Nepali.   It is difficult finding decent shelter since many buildings have collapsed or on the verge of collapsing.  His parents are far away in the village (63 miles or 100km), sleeping under tin sheets since their house has crumbled.  Narayan is unable to see them as the roads are currently inaccessible.  There has been a funeral service for his grandmother, a victim of the earthquake.  His aunt has been airlifted to the nearest hospital to be treated.  


400 people have been killed in the Dhading district that he resides in.  There are 7-8 district and all houses made of stone and mud have collapsed.  Unfortunately, that means 95% of the houses in that region have been destroyed because they were all made of stone and mud.


Narayan reported feeling 100 aftershocks and they are still coming. I mentioned purchasing a tent at least to protect from the rain for now, but the shops are all closed and will hopefully open in a few days. They have enough food at the moment, but there is an issue of accessing fresh, clean water and sanitation issues due to the open ground and the destruction. As soon as I reach the $500 mark, I will send the first donation. I am trying to give bigger lump some donations instead of frequent small money transfers due to the Western Union fees.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apr 28th: Narayan never asked for monetary donations and just prayers, but I just cannot sit back anymore and not try to help our beloved friend who has lost his home and grandmother in the 2015 deadly earthquake in Nepal. 

The fundraising goal might change as I find out more info from Narayan on how much is needed. 100% that is fundraised will be given directly to Narayan.

Dear Naran, I have been in Nepal twice working on Habitat builds with you. I have always been impressed with your dedication and generosity to other people. I hope my donation gives back some of what you have shown. 2 years ago
