It has been just over a month since the magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck the poverty stricken country of Nepal. In the time since, people still have not received help as the rugged landscape and lack of infrastructure has made it nearly impossible for rescue crews to get to the most remote villages. In most cases, the only way these villages can be accessed is by walking; often for many days. Now that the earthquake damaged the trails, it has made these villages nearly inaccessible.
One of our friends in Nepal recently contacted us asking us for help. They are from a group of villages in the Briddim and Rasuwa district, near the Tibet border, due north of Kathmandu. The village and surrounding area was located near the epicenter of the devastating earthquake. We received this message from our friends that describe the destruction that occurred.
“Now all my family are very sad how to rebuild house again and we have big problem this time earthquake in Briddim and all Rasuwa district. hope you can kind help me again you can fundraising donation and send to me.
