  • One year of the Nepal Earthquake

    Reconstruction! That's the main activity at Nepal. This is how most of this country feels since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake left on April 25, 2015, nearly 9,000 dead, 22,000 wounded and destroyed more than 600,000 homes. Very little has been rebuilt. Very few lives were repaired.
    The government devoted most of the last 12 months to deal with the country's constitution of problems, a discussion that generated ethnic unrest in the plains of Nepal, a diplomatic dispute with India and for many months, the blockade of the border with the latter country, which reduced to almost nothing fuel supplies.

    Crazy to think it has been a year since that terrible calamity. Sure, people may be rebuilding their homes, but the loss of lives and bitter memories will linger longer than any broken wall in their vicinity. It did bring out the best in people though, as donations from all over the world flooded their centers, and the hearts and minds of people from halfway across the world were with them, even if it were just in spirit. A little bit of added faith in humanity, don't you agree?

        "ädded faith in humanity" is all we can expect for sure. I totally agree with you that donations from all over the world should flooded their centers, but I would like to help even more! Do you know if they are accepting volunteers or any other type of help?
