Earthquake aid relief work - May 4

UPDATE OF OUR AID RELIEF WORK FOR 2 DAYS FROM SUNDAY 03 MAY TO MONDAY 04 MAY – NUWAKOT, SUNDARADEVI VDC – # of WARD 1-9 AND No. OF HOUSES 550. LOSS OF LIFE 24 .

Visit to Bangari Village: Today after 6 hours of sleep Achyut, Sury and myself headed back to the village to see first hand the pertaining situation and to deliver relief materials meant for Bangari Village. Bangari Village is a Tamang Community that had been the greatly affected resulting in substantial destruction generated by the earthquake. I was dreading to see the village as I had heard from the headmaster that it was really bad. When I got there and looked around the village it was as if a bomb had just exploded in the middle of the village, everywhere I looked I could only see complete destruction of houses. All the residents of the village were outside and looked at me as if God had sent an angel to help them. I could see the pain and grief in their eyes, they had lost 4 people in the village, some had shaved their heads out of respect for their loved ones who had died and had no time to mourn as they had to start searching for their belongings in the rubbles left by the quake. There were no words that I could say to them that would ease their pain I simply looked at their faces and made them feel that they are not forgotten by the rest of world. After a 15 min inspection of the village I sat with the people and started a simple chat with the residents and gave them a few words of inspiration and ensured them that they would be looked after by our Nepal Green Tara Foundation. It will most definitely take some time to heal the loss suffered by all the quake victims but all we can do is hope.

We have again touched the hearts of our Nepali friends of Sundardevi , Khaulay and Bangari .

"I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. "
