EVENT DATE: Apr 25, 2015
On Saturday April 25, 2015, Nepal was hit by a magnitude-7.8 quake near the capital of Kathmandu flattening homes, buildings and temples, causing widespread damage across the region and killing more than 3,800 people. The death toll is expected to rise as the full extent of the damage is assessed. A seemingly endless series of aftershocks continues to traumatize survivors. Residents huddled in the cold rain overnight for safety. The quake was the strongest in the region in more than 80 years.
As we hear stories from our loved ones in Nepal and watch the monuments and sacred temples we grew up with rendered to dust, we feel hopeless but also determined to help rebuild Nepal.
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something.
“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
