Nepal Earthquake - post #4

1st May 2015

Still shaking ... the after tremors continue

The situation in Nepal continues to be really difficult. After tremors continue, adding to fear and anxiety. I have just been talking with the team from our Bhaktapur Self-Sustaining Orphan Home in Sipadol village - I was with them when the actual big quake occurred and know they are all alive - but now there is no chance of living in our Home again as the building is truly structurally damaged. We have sent emergency funds and trying to get tents - but it is not easy. Thankfully the Home has water and food - especially from our own garden! So immediate food is ok. However we keep hearing of more and more villages and places with nothing at all - so we truly ask if you can be helpful and donate what you can - all of it is going directly to help with basic essentials right now.
