Please see below for a short sentiment written by Fahim Rahim regarding Susma and Bijay.
When people ask me whats my motivation, where am I getting all this energy and drive? Let me tell you a story about Susma, a 6 year old girl from Yangri village in Sindupalchowk District. Amrit Sharma visited this village of Yangri Sunday, where I was about 10 days ago and when I landed our team was the first after over a week of first earthquake to deliver supplies. I did not know Susma then!
"Susma, a 6 year old girl from Yangri village in Sindupalchowk District. When the M7.8 earthquake stuck Nepal, Susma was in her house with her brother Bijay. Her house was built out of rocks and wood, and held together with mud. Three long hours later, the villagers heard her screams and dug her out of the rubble. She was safe, alive, and only slightly injured. Unfortunately, her brother, 10 year old, Bijay, didn’t survive the house collapse."
